Sodium Hexametaphosphate/Calgon

Sodium hexametaphosphate or Calgon is a relative newcomer to the natural cleaning kit, even though it has been sold for years as a water softener. It is nothing more than naturally occurring sodium carbonate heated together with a product of phosphate rock. It has no odor and is safe to use when dissolved in water. The only remote hazard may be that the dry crystals are relatively sharp and may aggravate your skin if handled too much. Sodium Hexametaphosphate has some amazing capabilities for such a simple compound. Sodium Hexametaphosphate gets rid of the dull, dingy, grey or yellow film that builds up on your fabrics after repeated washings with soap or detergent. Using sodium hexametaphosphate on a regular basis will prevent dulling film from forming and keep your fabrics bright. How much sodium hexametaphosphate you use will depend on the hardness of your water. If you have not been using soap for your clothes, sodium hexametaphosphate will help tremendously. Sodium hexametaphosphate is probably the best substance you can use in your dishwasher. Not only does it cut grease and leave dishes spotless, it also acts as a scale inhibitor and will actually clean your dishwasher with each washing. Since sodium hexametaphosphate is a water softener, it will also boost the cleaning action of soap for any use. Sodium hexametaphosphate will work as well on your windows as it will on your dishes.

Methylene chloride

Methylene chloride (Dichloromethane DCM) is an organic compound with the formula CH2CI2 .This colorless, volatile liquid with a moderately sweet aroma is widely used as a solvent. Although it is not miscible with water, it is miscible with many organic solvents. Methylene chloride is predominantly used as a solvent in paint strippers and removers; as a process solvent in the manufacture of drugs, pharmaceuticals, and film coatings; as a metal cleaning and finishing solvent in electronics manufacturing; and as an agent in urethane foam blowing. Methylene chloride is also used as a propellant in aerosols for products such as paints, automotive products, and insect sprays. It is used as an extraction solvent for spice oleoresins, hops, and for the removal of caffeine from coffee. Methylene chloride is also approved for use as a postharvest fumigant for grains and strawberries and as a de-greening agent for citrus fruit. One of the most well-known applications of dichloromethane is in the drinking bird heat engine.
