    oops....left bleach in hot trunk

    I accidently left a few bottles of bleach in my trunk. Not sure how long they were in there. Will they even still be useful??

    I don't think it would hurt anything to use them... you can always test after using them to see how much they brought up your FC.

    maybe a week? It still smelled like bleach but not as strong. I used it and will test in a bit to see if it was useful. Just curious about it I guess.

    I'll bet they were still fairly effective. Like dattia said, it won't hurt anything. I wouldn't be surprised if they had lost just a little potency but definitely still useful.

    Frm working at walmart unloading trucks before, you'd be surprised how hot stuff gets in those trailers as it just sits outside the store all day waitin to be unloaded that night. Not to mention how long it sat before it even gets to the store. So I'm sure it's still good!
