Recycle Bleach Water 5 Times

contest winner icon

Take the clothes from your soaking pail (or other) and wring them out and toss in the washer.

  • Grab your sponge or cloth and saturate it in the laundry soak water and wipe down any number of bleach safe places or items.

  • Grab your mop and do the floor real quick.

  • Pour a little of it down your drains to freshen them.

  • Dump the bleach water into the toilet and either allow it to sit a little while and swish or swish it right then (depending how busy your bathrooms are).

    Yes, by the time the bleach water ends up in the toddy, it is dirty but still bleachy. The floor dirt that's in it will be flushed down instead of poured down a sink to not serve any real purpose.

    Good ideas. However, if you have a septic system don't over do the bleach, as this kills the good bacteria that enables your system to break down your toilet waste. Having to replace a septic system is major bucks! The person who cleans our system said to be very careful what goes down the drain as it is a delicate balance. In many areas it is against code to even have a garbage disposal.
