I'm looking for a Peroxide booster I can add to my presprays and rinses. Ideally I would like just peroxide with no additives. Any suggestions?
Will this have any negative effect on encap solutions?Boost All - https://interlinksupply.com/index.php?item_num=CR16C
The blue oxy crystals accelerate the release of oxygen from the powder.
The powder formula will still stable much longer than a liquid peroxide.
It depends upon the specific encap solution. Many encaps are formulated to work best at a particular pH level. Change the pH level much and they won't work as well. They may even begin forming the polymers before the solution has been applied to the carpet and get sticky.Will this have any negative effect on encap solutions?
Thanks. Ours is the perfect blend of peroxide and citrus solve in a powder form. It's so easy to mix too much citrus and leave residue. So we blended it perfectly so that our techs would not use the glug glug method.
I have never tried the Harvard SOB but I have used boostall and cobbs brightener, I need to tried robs stuffI use to use peroxide powder, but in order to cut down on products in the van I decided I would just use my OSR product as my peroxide. I use SOB by Harvard. I don't do hardly any sub surface extracting and eventually might get ride of that and only keep another oxygen product Harvard makes called "1 Shot". 1 Shot is an oxygenated powder for marble and other stones that are PH sensitive. It seems to have quite a bit of peroxide and I think it will take care of all my needs and eliminates two other jugs on the truck. Something to think about.
Various forms of peroxide are available. They come in various strengths and various purities. Some have stabilizers to keep them fresh longer. In the liquid form, peroxide is very unstable. Heat, light and time both cause it to degrade pretty quickly.What does a peroxide booster do? In what cleaning situations should it be used?
So the purpose of using it is to brighten light colored fabrics? Does it take out the yellow staining in urine spots?Various forms of peroxide are available.

The powdered forms last longer. They can be mixed with raw materials that leave a white powder behind and/or raw materials that do not dissolve easily.
The liquid forms may also have additive, especially those designed for hair care and not carpet cleaning. They don't evaporate completely and so leave a residue behind.
Peroxides can damage natural fibers. Wool and cotton are especially sensitive.
Peroxides are oxygen bleaches. They do not clean, but they whiten and also brighten light colors. If used too strong they can remove color or fade color.
Many powdered peroxide products also boost or buffer the pH. The pH tends to stay around 10 for a longer time even when the cleaning solution is interacting with soils, oils, and hard water. This means the cleaning solution can maintain its pH during longer dwell times.
Peroxides tend to evaporate and/or break down to water and oxygen. Not much residue from hydrogen peroxide itself, but can be residues from what it is blended with.
Yes, it can do that at the proper dilution for the type of fabric being cleaned. It works on stains but not on urine odors.So the purpose of using it is to brighten light colored fabrics? Does it take out the yellow staining in urine spots?
