Bleach and baking soda are no use for removing deposits of aluminum chlorohydrates. These deposits are made of $\ce{Al(OH)_{𝑥}Cl_{(3−𝑥)}}$ and they are only soluble in somewhat concentrated $\ce{HCl}$ or $\ce{NaOH}$ solutions, whose pH are either $<1$ or $>13$. $\ce{HCl}$ solutions are not always available in domestic settings. $\ce{NaOH}$ solutions ...

I assumed the stains were from carbonaceous exudants from my pores - or the biogenic products of bacterial life on my skin. So I bleached the undershirts, soaked them in a diluted bleach (sodium hypochlorite) solution (about 1 in 10, I think). BIG ...

@Harry Holmes: Here is a simplified example of how the formation of Bakelite may occur under base-catalyzed conditions to incorporate formaldehyde as -CH2- at the ortho and para positions of phenol. There are a myriad of permutations as to the order of condensations. I have selected one that illustrates the Michael-like addition that seems to have eluded you....

Question 1: Carbomer Question 2: Not sure about the question, but anyway. Sure you can create a spray (theoretically), but the process is really hard (please, do not make it at your house) because you need a propellant. By the way, such a high concentration of Parfum. Question 3: Part1: According to your observations, in my own opinion, the concentration of ...
