"Yes, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. I did purchase SLS but haven't used it.  It seems that there is always something else going on."

"Thanks - I am starting to think that my Surf of choice, SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate), may be the reason that I have had problems in the past. It is not super slippery - it "lathers" like crazy but the lather is thick. So when you say SLS…"

"I have used the gookit surf as the standard surf to use and has worked fine for me. Mabie because I have quite a lot of it and no need to look at other options. Also because I think the goo-kit surf is diluted so can use more without the lamp…"

"So, here is an answer that was posted on one of my ramblings,   Critter, "For surf I use a mixture of water and SLS. I use 1/4 tsp of SLS for every six ounces of water. Then I apply this mixture to my lamps at about 10 ml per quart of…"

Surfactant Help Please (SLES)?

I bought a gallon of 100% pure SLES and it  "bricks" or basically loses all viscosity when it hits H2O.  Has anyone ever tried reducing it down to the 28% SLES solutions that are typically sold on ebay and if so how did you do it (I mixed it for 20 minutes by hand and still pretty chunky).What do all or any of you use for Surf? I am starting to doubt the SLES.....I was gonna buy some from surf magma but they really hose you on the shipping.... but if it's worth it then maybe.Any words of wisdom…See More

"I use this one with a U.K. power strip. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000MWAKVU/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Works well and is less than the ones on eBay."
