    @ AndyLandy

    TAED is in all of the Vanish Oxy laundry boosters; I'd suggest the Vanish Oxi Crystal White, see the picture.

    Hydrogen Peroxide can be bought from Sally's Hairdressing Supplies, there's likely to be one in your area. They call it Developer in hairdressing circles and it's usually in a white or brown 1 litre bottle.

    You only need Xanthan Gum if you want to make the gel version to paint onto larger surfaces.

    What strength H2O2 is required? I have loads of contact lens solutions, some of which are peroxide-based, but I'm suspecting they're very very low concentration.
    Thinking about accelerating your A1200? Check out my buyer's guide.

    Well, ideally, you need about 10% strength and the maximum sold to Joe Public is 12%, as sold at Sally's. You can get weaker ones but it takes longer to treat parts.

    Does the parts I want to treat need to have clear sight to the UV-light or can i put stuff on top of each other to save space in the bowl?

    You can put them in an opaque bowl, however, I would recommend that you stir them every hour or so, to ensure that all sides get treated. Just as with any normal light source, items in the 'shade' don't get touched.

    You can get a 'beefed up' effect by using aluminium foil to reflect more UV light back into the container from above, like a mirror. Some people have done this when they have used a washing-up bowl.

    A large glass or clear plastic bowl with tin foil on the outside would be the absolute ideal, as UV light would be reflected from below as well as above.

    I hope that you can understand what I mean.

    No problem. It's probably worth looking up second-hand aquariums in the local papers too, as these would be tailor-made for this and they come in different sizes.
