    A Gallon Isn't A Gallon

    Just thought this might be good to post for those that are doing a SLAM or adding large dosages of bleach...

    Those "gallon" jugs of bleach sold at Target, Wally World and grocery stores are not really a gallon of bleach any more...

    They are 121 ounces whereas a gallon is 128 ounces.

    Yep, they took away 7oz and increased the strength to 8.25%. Saving millions on shipping over time is my guess as to why.
