The Classic Basic H is different than Basic H2 - Here is some info on that:
Shaklee Basic H was the original formula, now known as Classic Basic H. Over the years, customers and Shaklee Distributors have found many different uses for Basic H that is not consistent with the labeling of the product. Shaklee Basic H was meant to be used as a non-toxic household cleaner. It was soon discovered that the original Basic H was purchased for many other uses! Farmers and ranchers use it as a great way to control horse flies, worm cattle, control crop pests and many other uses. Classic Basic H turned out to be a great all natural alternative to farmers. The home gardener started to realize that Basic H helped with greener grass, healthier plants, sunburn, mosquito control, ant killer, car wash and so much more!  (Shaklee does not endorse these uses because testing was not done in regards to uses other than cleaning and household uses).
Several years ago Shaklee wanted to get the "Green Seal" of approval for Shaklee Basic H and they had to reformulate it. This is when Shaklee Basic H2 was born. Shaklee Basic H2 is more concentrated, if that is even possible, and it is mainly used for cleaning purposes. Some people have used Basic H2 for a fly spray, mosquito spray and some of the other uses discovered for the Original Classic Basic H. If you are a farmer, rancher or use Basic H for purposes not listed on the label it is highly recommended that you use the Classic Basic H. Basic H and Basic H2 are very similar and work equally well for its labeled purposes.

  2. Mrs. Kindred,
    Can you tell me the amount of water mixed with cc's of Basic H for goats?
    We use small 3-5 gallon buckets to water our goats.
    Is Classic Basic H still available?

    1. Tim,
      I apologize for not answering sooner.... I just now saw this...
      As far as how much water to add with the cc's of Basic H Classic, some people just add it to a 1-3 gallon bucket. Others will put it in a large syringe with the water and put it down the goats throat. I personally like the bucket method best and use a 3 gall. bucket with my goats. Yes, Basic H Classic is still available - but you can only purchase it is 5 gal. or 30 gal. I know that is alot to buy at one time - some folks find neighbors/farmers or friends to split it with. And it still works as a great household cleaner too!

      Hope this helps....
