Conclusion
Two products were effective of the * tested, Ecolink Safestrip and Savogran SI# 4. They were 101.33 & 100.08 % effective respectively. The SI#4 is very thick and was not able to be stirred at 100% with a sirbar and needed more then just manual rinse. It should either be a wipe or a spray rinse. There were also 3 products that added weight to the coupons, 2 significant weight; Soygold 2000 & ME 1612.
