Basic H has numerous applications on the Farm. While not recommended for internal livestock use, it has been found effective by many farmers as a de-wormer. It also has been proven in use as a soil conditioner, allowing ground which was resistant to water penetration to become porous and more productive.
Here are a few of the many uses Basic H has been found effective for:
Fire Extinguisher – 1 tablespoon Basic H to 1 pint spray bottle; put water in first then add the H to prevent suds. Very effective on grease fires; keep one by the stove, in the tool box, by the welder… Also 1 gallon H to 55 gallons water in 55 gallon water barrel; suffocates a fire fast.
