When I mix Dektol I get a nice, clear solution (Philadelphia tap water).
But when I mix D-72 I get a milky, cloudy solution after I add the sodium carbonate. Why, and what can be done to rectify this? The D-72 works fine but I store my solutions in clear PET plastic bottles and I hate to see the cloudy solution on my shelf (there really ARE worse things to complain about, true).
Philadelphia tap water is not hard: it makes a nice lather with soap. What does the proprietary formula (Dektol) have to prevent this? - David Lyga
