Your just paying for the name, to save yourself some money buy the generic brands.

I've tried a lot of different brands, but I always go back to Clorox. To my way of thinking it seems to do a better job.

Totally agree!!!!! The store brand definitely does NOT have the cleaning power of Clorox!!!!! There are different ingredients or higher percentages without a doubt

I am perfectly happy with store brands or generic. They seem to be the same.

The only difference is the bottle. Clorox claims to have a spill proof bottle.

For the difference in price, I prefer to just be more careful pouring out of the generic bottle!

I buy generic also for just plain chlorine.

The bleach ingredient in bleach is a 5-6 per cent solution of sodium hypochlorite. I've read labels and all seem to be around that percent. Perfumes and water, possibly something else are the remainder, but that's the bleaching agent. You can increase the effectiveness of bleach [I've read] by adding a few tablespoons of baking soda to wash water. I don't bleach all the time, but use baking soda or borax or both with hot water and recommended amount of detergent for that particular load.

I usually use less than recommended detergent measure for most loads. Hanging things in sunshine helps as well, but it's winter for most of us now, but sun is great bleach.

I have been using & diluting granular chlorine for over 30 years. I talked to a chemist many years ago & found out the dilution amount to use. Bleach is nothing more than watered down chlorine.

For 1 cup bleach, use the granular chlorine & measure out 1 tsp. into the wash tub as the water is filling. Let it completely fill & I use something long handled to make sure it's mixed, then load clothes & it works great.
I've never had a problem with this. I have even found some chlorine marked down from time to time.

The only thing you need to be careful with is to not get any moisture into the chlorine container. Sometimes the container gets old & needs to be replaced. So I'd use something like heavy duty plastic to put it in, if needed.

Clorox works a lot better than a generic brand.
