This makes no sense.... Someone had to have come up with a way to break this down for something used to create it. Anyone around here have a chemistry
background? What is in Tide..and apparently only Tide as a brand...that can be extracted for use in another application? Drugs? Explosives? Some other
chemical use where the real product is MUCH higher than this?
I shook my head over a full blown epidemic of Cargo hijacks and trailer thefts of Enfamil Baby Formula I used to haul to the West Coast. Made no
sense...until I finally learned the retail cost of each container in my trailers.
That stuff was more valuable than Gold for the ease to sell and
need to buy among that segment who wouldn't hesitate getting Baby formula that way.
Tide though?? It's not cheap..and everybody uses it. Everybody doesn't use THAT much of it though...talk about a one trick pony. It's like trying to
peddle dish soap. We all NEED it...but how often are we needing MORE of it? Has to be something in the makeup they're extracting.
Quantum...believe it or not, I really must have been typing this while you were posting yours. lol.... Perhaps you have a good point though. I'd be
interested to know if a Chemist has the answer, but detailing the answer likely isn't for the best.
