Good morning R2R. Finding bleach without additives (colorguard, no-splash, etc) has become pretty difficult. I think I may have finally found it in Staples. They sell Clorox "Germicidal Bleach" which is concentrated at 8.25%.

I understand that I need to be slightly more careful with it because of the strength, but I'm still a little worried that it may have some other additives in it. It doesn't look like it (from the size 0.5 font on the label, anyways) and I emailed Clorox about it. I will post back if get an answer. Just curious if anyone has used this particular product before.

I’ve not used that. Lately, I’ve only found Gordon food service bleach to be 5.25% sodium hypochlorite without surfactants or perfumes. Very frustrating!
