  • Dilution rates???

    So...1:1, 3:1, 12:1......what does it mean????
    How do you officially, accurately figure out the dilution rate?? I've been in grooming for 3.5 years (grooming for 1.5) and I still can't figure it out and it bothers me!

    On the dilution rates basically it is just as stated prior to me seeing exact info ....if it was say 12 to one I just eyeballed the gallon jug , filled it with hot water to a quess kinda area then added shampoo . I just divided the jug into twelves left one then went from there.

    Natures Specialites website has specific ratios....and I do use the product

    not sure if that site will go threw but if the product says 32to1 then 1/2cup of product to gallon of warm water.... 12-1 would be 1 1/2 cup product to gallon of warm water.

    Hope this helps abit
    Dilution is important when using certain types of shampoos /treatments

      The first number is water, the second is shampoo. Like 12:1 is for every one part of shampoo put in 12 parts water. Equal parts.
      What does a dog do on it's day off?

        1 part shampoo to 12 parts water. so like 1 oz of shampoos mixed with 12 oz of water
        If your dog is fat, you are not getting enough exercise!
