    Bleach Prices

    Just stopped at Aldi, bleach is up to 1.15/96oz now. Is that regional or a nationwide trend in increased pricing?

    Nationwide, from what I understand. Started in California, where all the trendy stuff starts....

    No offense to any CA residents, but I would prefer they keep this trend on the West coast

    Re: Bleach Prices

    Three weeks ago, Krogers ran their Clorox, $1.50 per 96oz Mega 10 special for two weeks straight. Buy 10 jugs at $1.50 and get $5 off at check-out! Got 'em for $1 each with the deal. I will definitely be watching for this deal again!

    Local WallyWorld has 96oz store brand $1.52. Just bought one today.

    Will check Aldi's prices tomorrow.

    In the mean time, there is a SWG in the back of my mind.......

    Re: Bleach Prices

    Bought bleach at Aldi's last week-end for $1.09. Had been 99 cents for a long time.
    I'm in Northwest Arkansas.
    Cost to make plastic jugs + gas/diesel delivery cost = increase.

    Re: Bleach Prices

    I just got gallon jugs of 12.5% at the local pool store for $2.59...the sign said $2.79 on sale but my receipt says I was charged 2.59...that's a great deal in my book, less jugs to carry. I bought four, I think I'm set for the rest of the season and winterizing....OMG winterizing....

    Re: Bleach Prices

    With a high quality chlorinating liquid, it's half-life is shown in the table at the end of this link. You can see that the life is very dependent on the temperature. About half the strength is lost in one year at 75F, but it's about half a year at 85F. Sounds pretty dicey keeping it over a winter season unless it's kept quite cool.

    Re: Bleach Prices

    Thanks for the info. I can store it in my insulated building out back. It can get pretty cold here, but we also get periods of 50 degree weather, too. Just trying to beat the price increase like everyone else.

    Re: Bleach Prices

    Near San Jose CA the cost of 6% bleach at Smart&Final is $5.29 for three 3-qt containers. Orchard Supply Hardware sells 2 gal of 10% pool chlorine for $7.57 (all prices include tax). If you work it out, the prices per %chlorine are just about the same.

    I just recently bought a generic 6% bleach at Menard's for 88 cents for 96oz... and then Rite Aid and Walgreens has a sale for bleach!!!

    There is a nice comparison of the cost of different sources of chlorine in this post.
