    Yesterday I received a gallon of this product and I have a question for those who have been using it on your dogs. My question is on the dilution. The product states its 2% and to dilute 2 tbs per gallon of water. But that seems to be quite diluted a mixture. If the product is 2% why not use it without diluting? It doesn't seem after dilution it would be anywhere close to the 2%. Hibiclens which is a product designed for human use is at 4% solution and its to be used without diluting, so it seems to me one could use the 2% solution right out of the gallon jug without dilution and without it being too strong. What say you?

    You can use it undiluted. I have done it many times but don't recommend it for long periods. I usually mix 1 part solution to 3 parts water and that has been working really well for us. Also, try to remember to store the undiluted solution in a cool and dark place as sitting in the light for a long period tends to weaken it and cause it to evaporate faster.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Thanks, that makes sense to me and 3 to 1 seems more like it as well.

    Are you pouring diluted solution on a cloth and then wiping folds and tear stains? Or should I stick to the wipes for that? This is a much cheaper option for sure!
