I've tried it several times, but never got it to work well. The liquid KOH I used was 45%. The liquid in the liquid KOH is WATER! We work so hard to keep water out of the "mix" why would you want to introduce water in?

Thats what I was thinking. He water washes so he can dry his BD, I dry wash so it probably would not work for me anyway. I would have to add another process for drying before Dry Wash. I think I will stick with what im doing. Thanks
