hi gang, i was reading something about someone making a batch of solution with tap water and it didn't have a chemical smell to it. I made a gallon batch of the stuff and i didn't smell anything, is the solution not good for sanitizing then?

how big is a batch? how much did you add? 3TBSP per gallon you should be able to smell quite strongly.

If you mixed it right you are ok. What was said is with some tap water it takes a few days to get that smell but with distilled water it came right away. It could be the chemical make up of ones idividual water that takes so long for the smell to come. :f
