All we need now is a thread about making homebrew TFR and that would truly be the fight to end all fights... 😊

Oh don't be sar-caustic...

No, i've been thinking about this, how hard could it be ? So i had a go.

Well its like, the TFR label mentions stuff called something oxy something, and something - thylene which sounds just the same as the ingredients in patio cleaner, right ?, so I chucked some of that in.

Then you need something soapy, so a bit of good old BOLD wont do any harm. It always makes me shirts look clean and white again.

Petrol is cheap and its great for lifting Tar spots, so a good glug of that went in too.

When I woke up, I realised I had banged me head on the floor, coz of the fumes, but its only the first batch. I will have to get some of those builders dust masks they sell at B&Q to stop it happening again Health and Safety and all that.

Alkaline is basically Milk init ? That should settle it down a bit.

All I need to do now is heat it on the stove and decant it into a sprayer.

Final touch is a toilet block left in overnight to give it a nice scent.

Made these around two years ago i dont think its so hard to make a good wax some of the better ingredients can be a pain to get hold of though i started with dodo juice solvent which is a good start but there are better ones to play with.
