    Excel works, as does HCl. 25 mL Excel per 1000 mL.

    In CSM stock solution add about 2g ascorbic acid + the 0.8g of potassium sorbate/2000mL. If you look around HCL (about 10mL of pool acid) and 40-60mL excel is also used to prevent mold. Smaller batches of stock solution might also be an option. When mixing add the CSM+B last.
    The ascorbic acid and potassium sorbate have been working out fine for me, so far so good. :)

    Excel works fine for me. No more "floaties" in my trace solution anymore! Yay!
