Did you know...?
Most national brand liquid cleaners that you find in your local grocery store are at least 95% water! Why pay for water? Get what you're paying for... BUY CONCENTRATES!
What is a dilution ratio?
A dilution ratio means that the produt contains a precentage of solids of raw materials which is high enough to allow the user to dilute the product with water, according to label directions, without compromising the performance of the product. Some of our customers have found that a higher dilution works best for them, while others prefer a lower dilution ratio. We suggest that you find the dilution ratio which best suits your needs. One element we cannot control is your water, which is also a factor in the performance of any cleaning product.
Use this table to determine how much concentrated product is needed to make the following amounts of diluted solution.
Use this chart as a guideline for diluting products. (15:1 ratio means 15 parts water to 1 part concentrate.) For example, to make 1 quart of solution @ 15:1 dilution, mix 30 oz water with 2 oz. of concentrate.

Harvested from free range cacti to ensure optimum vitamin & mineral content, Opuntia englamanii (Prickly Pear Cactus) is a natually occurring insect repellent & healing agent whose medicinal uses were first discovered by Native Americans centuries ago. The slippery-oily juice is ideal for use as an emollient and demulcent to provide soothing relief from dry, itchy, irritated skin. For centuries, prickly-pear has been used to heal cuts, wounds, burns, contusions, warts & various other skin conditions.
The benefits of the external use of oatmeal range from soothing, healing relief, skin conditioning & elimination of free radicals. While other oatmeal products use "colloidal oatmeal", which loses many of its beneficial properties during the refining process, SPECTRUM Laboratories products contain oatmeal refined by a process which uses a method of cold fractionation. The superior process, developed by Dr. Richard Potter, ensures that "the good stuff" remains.

Many different breeds suffer from excessive eye drainage. It is more noticeable with
lighter-colored dogs because of the hair color change that takes place. The telltale
reddish-brown stain is easy to spot, but hard to cure. As in many things, prevention is
the name of the game.
First, it is important to rule out any health problems that may be causing the eye irritation.
One of the easiest ways to reduce staining is to give the dog only distilled water to drink.
In addition to the unattractive appearance of the staining, often the eye matter collects and
