For those of you who make up your own 4% hydrochloric acid, are there any specific brands to use, sites to buy from, or general red flags to watch out for when buying the higher-concentration bottles? I just don't want to go out buying anything only to realize it's somehow not the right one. 

Thank You!

I bought 36% HCl from SCIENCECOMPANY.COM and have been happy with the product. It is very dangerous to deal with, but really cheap when diluted.

If you are going to use 4% HCL to make CDS, you can use low quality HCL like muriatic acid and dilute it down to 4%. 

Take all safety precautions when handling strong HCL. It is dangerous stuff. 

If you are going to make MMS1 or one of the CDH solutions, you should find a high quality, food grade HCL.
