    It went up to $2.99 in Alabama. I started a thread in the Coffee Bar about it last week.

    Re: Price of bleach

    Same here at walmart $2.54 to $2.98
    Dollar General $2.50 to $2.75
    Aldi 96oz went from .99 to $1.19 a month or so ago.

    The Walgreen's flyer we got yesterday has a coupon for 96oz for 0.99, but I'm not sure if it's 6%, limit 3.

    I looked at the bottles between the Walmart and Dollar General, and the markings on the bottom are the same. I guess they both could be getting the bottles from the same place, but I'm guessing the juice and all is coming from the same place.

    Re: Price of bleach

    Last year I bought the "Big Lots" store brand at $1.30 per gallon (128oz) for 6%.
    It rose to $1.40 then $1.50 per gallon. At some point they changed the name of the store brand and I checked to make sure it was still 6%, It was. This year it has stayed steady at $1.50, but today I just checked the label and no percentage is listed, and a user here reports they are 3%. I better do my homework!

    $2.88 for the 182oz Great Value brand at Wal-Mart here in Houston. I'm new to the pool scene, but I thought that was a good price.
