    • It’s actually “Laurel Rice” but people often call it “Rice” for short. Please note, this is not the same as the rice we eat at home; as it is a chemical used in making detergent, and as such not edible.

  1. Just visit the chemical sellers. Tell them the litres you want to do, starting from 20 litres and they know the measurement to give you.

    • That is not bad, but there is a danger in doing that; as they will only sell you the chemicals based on their own method. So, this may not work if you have a different method. The best is to know what you want and make your order based on your need.

  2. Sir, thank you for the information but some of these chemicals are not in liquid. In such case, how do you compound it to liquid

    Thank you.
