An unopened bottle of bleach leaked on a wood shelf. How do we clean it up? The bleach looks crystallized. Do I have to replace the wood shelf?

Try wearing gloves and wash it off with plain old water and cloth. Dry well and then make your judgment about replacing.

I agree. Just wash it off with water.

After washing off the crystallized bleach with water. Wash the area with a water and white vinegar solution; one half white vinegar to one half water then. Dry shelf well. This mixture will "neutralize" the bleach, meaning it will prevent the bleach from doing any damage to your shelf.
