Precisely. I've seen guys really overdo it. It doesn't take much. I have considered using baby shampoo instead. Haven't looked into it but I think it has the glycerin which is the point of adding soap. Locally the only way I've been able to find straight glycerin is in enema form, and I refuse to bring that to a job site.

You can bring it in the bag, you don't have to inject it first....unless you just don't want to waste it....

That's funny. I was actually looking for it for a photo shoot (I used to have a photo studio) with a bodybuilder. A mixture of half water half glycerin, misted onto a body or beverage can/bottle or fresh produce or whatever makes absolutely picture-perfect water droplets. But all I could find was the enema. The guy was 60 something but he was being featured in a magazine for some lifetime achievement award in bodybuilding, so I decided for my own health to not show up with an enema. I emptied it into a spray bottle first. :)

Forgive my ignorance but what's the advantage of adding detergent to your finishing compound?
Makes it smooth and creamy. Like water, but with none if the drawbacks.

Adding 1 or 2 scoops of light weight to a bucket of all purpose can cut the pocs down . It will also help keep the scratches out of the onion skin coats. It's about the only thing I've found the L/W good for.
