    Bleach prices....6% vs 12.5%, etc...

    I've been picking up Regular clorox bleach (6%) from my local Costco.

    They sell a box of three 1.5 gallon containers for $10. So, roughly $2.85 a gallon for 6% bleach.

    How does that price compare to 12.5% prices? Where do I find 12.5% bleach?

    You're paying about the same for 6% bleach as we're paying at a local Giant grocery store (1.42 gallon bottles). The only place we've found 12.5% bleach is at a local pool store, and it's around $7 for a 1 gallon bottle, so while the 6% requires more bottles, it's still cheaper over the long run. I'm going to keep looking for a cheaper source of 12.%.
