    Dollar Store bleach

    In case you are interested (not) Dollar Store sells a jug of bleach called "The Home Store bleach" (96 0z.) for $1.00 each per jug + tax. Jug contains only 3 % sodium hydro chlorite and does not have that standard sweet bleach smell or yellowish color. Also the % is not listed on label which prompted me to email Dollar Store who later provided the info. Bleach is manufactured by Greenbrier International Inc., Chesapeake VA.

    You would have to use three of the dollar store bleach to equal one (8.25%, 121 oz) usually found in grocery and big box stores. Less product, less chlorine and more money.

    I have a few jugs of 'guaranteed value' bleach. Theres nothing on the label stating how much SH % is in it. Anyone know? It was $1.50 each, 121oz jug.

    If it doesn't list the % it's not the good stuff. 8.25% will always say the % and usually will say "concentrated".
