On machines: The serial number is located on a white label like this. It is usually located at the lower back or bottom of the machine (for Lift-Off models - remove Lift-Off pod to locate), or behind the cleaning tanks.
On cleaning formulas: cleaning formulas do not contain serial numbers. Instead, please enter the full number from the UPC code. Look for it on the back of the bottle or can, near the bottom. Here is a sample:

Write down the equation for the formation of the complex trans-K[Cr(C2O4)2(H2O)2.3H2O from the reactants K2Cr2O7 and H2C2O4.2H2O.

limiting reactant:
The limiting reagent, or also called the "limiting reactant", is the chemical that determines how far the reaction will go before the chemical in question gets used up, causing the reaction to stop. The chemical of which there are fewer moles than the proportion requires is the limiting reagent.

Limiting reagent formula
There is a much simpler formula which can be used. However, you must first calculate the moles of both of the reagents in the reaction. Once the number of moles have been figured out, just simply fill in this equation (reagent 1 being the first reactant and 2 being the second):

When the answer to the formula is less than zero, reagent 1 is the excess reagent. When the answer is larger than zero, reagent 1 is the limiting reagent. The number shows how much in excess one reagent is from another. If the answer for the formula is zero, both reagents are perfectly balanced. The unit of an answer is in moles.

I have just had an iflo metal bath installed but am unsure what products should be used to clean it

When cleaning your metal bath you should clean your bathtub with a non-abrasive soap. Dishwashing detergent such as Joy®, Palmolive®, Ivory®, etc and a soft sponge or cloth is all that you need. If you spill something on the bathtub and need something stronger, the following are SAFE to use: Fantastic®, Tackle®, Top Job®, Formula 409®, ScrubFree®, Calgon Bath®, Windex®, Clorox Bleach®, Spiffits® Bath, Glass Plus®, and **** & Span Powder®.

DO NOT Clean Your Acrylic Bathtub with Paint Thinner, Goof OFF®, Scrubbing Bubbles®, Acetone, Lacquer Thinner, M.E.K. ® or other chemicals that attack the structural integrity of plastics (including, but not limited to, acetones). Use of these chemicals will destroy the acrylic surface of your bathtub and there is no way to reverse the damage caused by this type of chemical reaction. Use of these chemicals will void your warranty.
