So, I am very new to tanning. But I have had nothing but trouble using citric acid. I am tanning with Lutan F. So, 3 oz of acid, 1 pound non iodized salt, 1 gallon of hot water. I make up the solution and it reads 2.4. Next day it’s reading 3.8. It won’t go down no matter what I do. If I more citric acid, the oh will spike or won’t change. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Perhaps I should Consider other pickle solutions, but I wanted to use the safest things I could in my shop because I have reptiles in here.
