    Bleach at Big Lots $1.50/gal

    I stopped by a Big Lots store yesterday for the first time in a while. They had 128 ounce jugs of bleach on sale for $1.50/jug. I couldn't find the concentration of the bleach anywhere on the bottle though. If its weak, it might not be as good of a deal as it might seem. Thought I would mention it anyway to all of you.

    the conventional wisdom here is to avoid the dollar store and big lots.

    I agree, I did alot of my BBB conversion from Baqucil with Big Lots bleach, and it was almost like pouring water. I think it's probably around 3%, less if that's possible. I stick to Chlorox (plain, unscented of course) just to be safe.
