Glad you brought the question and I have one for you. Please look on
the label for a chemical name for the "safety" pickle. I'm not
familiar with that name... Also, is the material a dry granule or a
The two pickles I'm familiar with (citric acid and sodium bisulfate)
come as dry granules and the proportions for mixing aren't too
critical. In fact, after a while in use, evaporation constantly
changes the concentration. When the liquid level drops, I add a
little more distilled water to restore the liquid level. If the
pickle seems to take too long, I add a little more of the granules.
Good for you for asking and shame on your supplier for not
responding to your request for Judy in Kansas, trying to
figure out how to protect my wooden cases from the predicted rain,
while transporting them to a show in my pick-up tomorrow!
