Have heard using this can turn your chook blue.
Can someone tell me the ration of Bluo to water, whether or not you rinse it off etc etc.

Never done this before :)

Go to Horseland and buy a shampoo product for use on palomino or light coloured horse tails. They're designed to shampoo out the yellow without turning everything blue. Even though the shampoos are blue in colour. Ask the staff to recommend something :)

i just gleefully dab it into the water until it changes to a light blue colour, an amount which varies according to the volume of water you are using.

the bottle should have an amount per volume indicated, for white clothes its about hte same as white chooks, they don't want to be turning your clothes blue either :)

Thank you all! - my gal turned out white enough to fetch a handsome auction price without scaring the punters by any overt hints of blue :)

Bottle not in the slightest bit helpful :) Think it dates back to 1980 something ! but no blue chicken and as stated a good price outcome so all good :)
