Bleach is going to be going up, not to panic anyone but maybe waaaay up. One if the major ingredients in bleach (caustic) is in very short supply and it's price is skyrocketing on the chemical markets now. Dow, one of the major producers, is running on allocation and has opted out of their supply contracts by declaring force majuere.
The good news is bleach will still work better and be more economical than the other options.
My local Costco is $4.85 for two 1.42 gal jugs.
Home Depot and OSH sell 2 gals of 12% for $6.50, which is a little cheaper, but I don't think they are really 12%. Whenever I add their 12%, my FC levels don't go up as much as I think they should.
Dollar General still has their 6% at $1.35 for the 96 oz. Take note though that some of their bleach was in a bottle that didn't have the % listed on the label. These bottles also looked a little different. I only bought the ones labeled 6%. Based on the previous post I'm thinking of going to Kroger's. If I did the math right 10% at that price comes out a little cheaper that 6% @ $1.35.
That's a good price. Even though the jugs are a little smaller than the 174 oz or whatever for $2.28 to $2.54 for 6%, the concentration is enough higher, that when you do the math, it actually figures out to a little less than the 6%. I use 10%, and I haven't found it quite that low yet. I would grab that up!
