        TP, flour, pasta i can sort of understand, but White King?

      •  

        Flour: people make bread, naan or roti.
        For me naan is part of 2/3 of my daily meal.

      Yes. It contains a small amount of sodium hypochlorite.

      One bottle of pool chlorine will last you, your friends and neighbours, for the duration of The Event as a disinfectant.

        Bleach degrades over time, even with pool stuff you can't store it that long.

        Always check the date of manufacture so that you get a fresh batch and it's at maximum strength (for your pool)

            @manic: It can degrade in concentration/potency (up to 50%) every 2-3 weeks.

              @KLoNe: Higher concentrations degrade quicker as well. Higher temperatures don't help either.

        Pool Shock is sodium hypoclorite if you want to buy concentrated.

        Yep. Limiting numbers.

    what's the deal here? you can get it at aldi/woolies/coles

    •  

      You cannot find $1.19 bleach from most of stores (you mentioned) due to the current situation.
      However you can still get one from Bunnings at this moment. This is the bargain coming from.
      The stock level of Bunnings is more accurate comparing to WWS/Big W.

        You don't drink coke, you snort it.

          You taste with your nose?

    I don’t understand what is the practical use of bleach at home to fight covid19? The only thing that you need to have is sanitiser in a car after gone out shopping for groceries , and then straight wash your hand with soap at home .
    I got 2 bottles of bleach bought before pandemic and untill now still haven’t used it at all apart from killing mould in a bathroom, not even for hand sanitiser as it’s too harsh for the skin. Can Anyone share me any ideas ?

    •  

      If the hand sanitizer is in your car, how do you get to it without infecting your door handles?

      What about your shoes? Or if someone sneezes, coughs or breaths on you or your clothes?

      What about the fact that it is transmissible in the air and can survive in the air?

      •  

        What about the fact that it is transmissible in the air and can survive in the air?

        [citation needed]

        Last I heard, it was droplet and contact only.

        Also not clear how you expect bleach to help if it were actually airborne.

        •  

          I was trying to be funny while also adding in some facts. It is transmissible and hangs around in the air. I don't have a citation handy, it is out there though.

      This page discuss the mixing levels.

      Cleaning of hard surfaces (e.g. bench tops) should be done using either:

      a physical clean using a combined detergent and 1,000ppm bleach solution (2-in-1 clean) made up daily from a concentrated solution. Follow manufacturer’s directions for dilution.
      a physical clean using detergent and water followed by a clean with 1,000ppm bleach solution (2-step clean), for example, household bleach or hospital-grade bleach solutions that are readily available from retail stores

    For anyone wondering a 1% solution of bleach is enough to kill the coronona virus on any surface. This means it makes a great spray and wipe, especially for in the work place.

    •  

      I mean, so will any soap.

      •  

        I'm a nobody, but AFAIK…
        Soap aids mechanical separation. Doesn't kill anything, merely breaks its bond, moves it elsewhere.
        Bleach can destroy molecules.

        •  

          Interesting, do you know if thag is that enough to make it ineffective?

          I assume so since they're telling people to wash hands.

          •  

            @Charleston: The 'soap' you're talking about is different from what AssangesCat is talking about.

            Soaps are sodium or potassium fatty acids salts, produced from the hydrolysis of fats in a chemical reaction called saponification.

          Soap actually dissolves the virus envelope, and deactivates virus.

            @nfr: Good info, thanks.

            I've always swayed between a germ-freak & bah, whatever.

    I am surprised that nobody is hoarding the the oxyaction laundry powders. Active ingredient is sodium percarbonate, that becomes hydrogen peroxide when mixed with water. Very good and safer disinfectant than bleach.

    Safety with Bleach

    Just a safety reminder that you should only be mixing bleach with water.

    Do not mix it with other cleaning agents.

    • Bleach + alcohol (e.g. ethanol, propanol) produces chloroform
    • Bleach + ammonia produces toxic chloramines
    • Bleach + an acidic substance produces chlorine gas

    Bleach as a Disinfectant

    Bleach (sodium hypochlorite) is effective against human coronavirus including COVID-19 (caused by SARS-CoV-2). The Department of Health and health departments around the country recommend a bleach solution of 0.1% concentration. Assuming your household bleach is roughly 4% concentration, this can be achieved by a 1:40 dilution.

    Additional points:

    • You want to make sure the surface is clean first, as organic material such as dirt deactivates bleach
    • If your bleach is less concentrated, or has been sitting around for some time, you must dilute it less to achieve the same effect
    • If it has been sitting around for a year, your bleach is probably useless for disinfection

    It is worth noting that quaternary ammonium compounds such as benzalkonium chloride used in Dettol/Pine-O-Cleen wipes are less effective against human coronavirus, when compared to > 60% alcohol, povidone iodine, bleach, hydrogen peroxide, etc. A good journal article recently published in the Journal of Hospital Infection demonstrated this.

    Used for years by home brewers all over the world to sanitise equipment.

    5 litres of distilled water, 10ml of (I think) 4% unscented bleach and 10ml of white vinegar to adjust the pH to get optimal effect from the bleach.

    30 seconds exposure and your stuff is sanitary. Momentarily, anyway.

      Don't mean to be the bleach Nazi here but generally please don't mix bleach with vinegar unless you're trying to produce chlorine gas to injure yourself or burn everyone's nasal membranes. I appreciate vinegar is a weak acid but still not a safe idea.

      •  

        I put the vinegar into the water, then mix to dilute, then add the bleach to the mix. Based on an interview with Charlie Talley, one of the chemists who designed Star San, which is one of the best known brewing industry sanitisers in the world. It's his recipe.

        But yes, your point is well made and I should have stated it explicitly.
