    Bleach Cost by Active Ingredient

    I saw a calculator here at some point where you could plug in what you paid for a bottle of bleach, size, %, etc... and it would do a cost analysis. Anyone have the link to that? I can't find it.

    Re: Bleach Cost by Active Ingredient

    I'm not proficient at this website yet, and haven't seen the calculator, but to calculate cost per oz of active ingredient, use Cost / oz / concentration. Cost is in $, oz is total for that cost (128 oz/gallon), and concentration is % concentration (use 0.06 for 6%, 0.125 for 12.5%, etc).

    Great prices seem to be around $0.12/oz, and normal prices around $0.22/oz (what I find at Aldi)
