    Which one is a better deal-Bleach or Liquid Chlorine

    I can get bleach at 8.25% in a 121 ounce jug for 3.50-The store I normally go to, the day on the bottle has been about 30 days old

    For example I went yesterday and it was day 206 of the year. The newest day they had on the jugs was 175.

    Liquid Chlorine at 10% is 5.00 a gallon and has to be purchased in packs of 4.

    So what is my better deal?

    $3.50/(121 *.0825) = $.35 oz
    $5.00/(128 * .10) = .39/oz

    Bleach is cheaper.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    Neither of those options are a very good deal. Check out this calculator that will help you figure this out:

    I was just telling someone else we found in our Walmart the bleach is $0.30/oz but you can walk over to the garden section and get liquid chlorine for $0.25/oz.
