Bit of an Impasse

I am at a bit of an impasse; I really cannot find a reasonable way of efficiently chelating individual metals with “household” items.
So far the recipes seem to be working well, they really are not for “dry dosing,” but work well mixed in a slightly acidic solution (<pH 5), either as a stock solution or as the “dry dose” amount and mixing (distilled water is best) it prior to dosing.
A little vinegar (acetic acid), lemon juice, Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) anything to pull the pH down to 5 or so.
Also, nothing really beats ball-milling (same as you use for making gunpowder) for mixing the recipes.
