    Ok... I'm doing research here... it seems that "jolt" does everything that Bin-die does..

    I'm guessing Jolt is the better product.. ??



    why would anyone use bin-die ??

    Only a worry if you realise you forgot to add the spray dye
    Anything Ian says may or may not be garbage, it may also be his own opinion or it may not be his opinion at all, it may just be something he felt like stating anyone following his advice does so at their own risk and may be doing something Ian would actually advise against.
    And if you don't like what Ian has to say use the ignore function if you don't know how ask i will gladly tell you

    Ok...I'm reading the label of Jolt... It seems alot more dangerous than Bin-die .. white cotton overalls ...etc

    Now, I'm reading the mixing directions... Its says "5lts in 200-500lts"

    Can someone who is better at math than me...and has has experience with this product tell me how they would mix up an 18 back pack sprayer ?

    thanks

    here it is.

    5 ltr = 300 ltr
    1 ltr = 300 divided by 5
    1 ltr = 60 ltr

    ? ltr = 15 ltr

    Now you only need a calculator.

    So basically you just change 300 to whatever volume you like
