works good for me, use it all the time. And you can really hasten the process by doing it in the auto tanner,add a touch of bacteriacide if you're doing it in a bucket or pail. I've found that Steve Rotramels *Bucktan scour relaxes quite well to. I used to use *Enzol B {?} but had to pay too close attention. I absolutely swear by both Bruce Rittles Relax-R and Steve's scour on salted or African {or any other for that matter} air drieds. Oh, I think Steve recommends a handful of salt with his scour, give him a call

that's TOO as in also
