There is an important point which I did not make at all obvious.
If the OP compounds at home she will know exactly what is in
her solutions. Should anything go wrong pinpointing the cause
will be much easier and a remedy more quickly found.

Off the shelf chemistry is laced with ph modifiers, sequestering
agents and ????. Were I in her position I'd seriously consider
compounding at home. Besides it's easy to do and fun. Dan
