    walmart great value bleach

    was at walmart this morning and I see they have a new label on their great value bleach. it's says "easy pour bleach" but removed the info about the % of sodium hypochlorite. I can only assume they did this on purpose and will not buy from them again until they publish this info again. it used to be 8.25%, but who knows now.

    My WalMart has always had that version, but eh plain 8.25% is there also. Check with the store as they may have just run out of the generic and filled the shelf with the easy pour.

    I'd stay away from the easy pour bleach as it has some additives that I wouldn't want to add to the water. Stick with the plain unscented bleach.

    +1 on the easy pour. I usually grab a couple of bottles of 8.25 every time I go to Wally World but ran out. I grabbed 8 last time I went. One of those (unknowingly) is the easy pour. I just poured some in and noticed some soap bubbles. I checked all my other bottles and I'm good. The labels are very similar and there is not percent specification on the easy pour bottle.

    Yea, same here. I grabbed an ezpour one time and dumped it in without noticing. As my bleach is held in a 35 gallon tank and added by my Stenner pump I can only guess it got fairly diluted in the tank with the standard bleach because I had no foaming or bubbles.
