You can use anything for your measurement but just keep it in mind that the amount of texapon and whitener used have to be half of other chemicals. For instance if texapon and whitener are 2 full plates then the remaining materials will have to be 8 full plates each. The quantity of texapon used is what determines the quantity of every other chemical to be used.


  1. Pour the texapon into a big bowl
  2. Add pine oil into the bowl and stir it together with the texapon
  3. Pour phenol to the content and stir vigorously
  4. Add lyzol to the content and stir very well
  5. Empty the booster into the bowl content and stir carefully
  6. Pour 6 litres of water and stir properly
  7. Dilute the carbolic acid with adequate quantity of water and add it to the content in the bowl
  8. Add the Izal concentrate and stir properly
  9. Now use a little quantity of water to dilute whitener before adding it to the mixture. Stir everything together very well.
  10. Empty the remaining water into the mixture and stir properly for some minutes
  11. Hurray! Your germicide is ready, package it for sale or for use.

Depending the colour of your germicide you can increase the quantity of the whitener if it is not white enough.
Texapon is an active agent (a sulfactant). To prevent your mixture from separating use enough or a considerable amount of it. Shortage or reduction of texapon will result in the separation of the mixture. Another thing that can cause separation maybe due to the fact that you did not stir the final content very well.

Capital for germicide production is not huge with #2,000 you can produce more than 3 litres for use. For commercial, you can start on a smaller scale with #20,000 and a larger scale from #500,000 and above.
