How to Clean And Sanitize With Clorox Bleach 101…. I have really been thinking about cleaning and sanitation needs in a disaster. We probably have some kind of bleach in our house. I use the brand Clorox Bleach because it comes in a “splash-less” type. The containers are just the right size for my family. Two adults and a Shih Tzu, Boston. I want to suggest to everyone to get some kind of cleaner that suits their lifestyle to sanitize things.
If we had a disaster what would you have in your house today to clean and sanitize an area of a sewer line broke on your street and started to back up into your house? Or if our local sewer system was interrupted for say two weeks…..do you have the necessary cleaning and sanitizing products you might need? Here is my choice.
Here are some items I clean with Clorox Bleach:
1. I use it for mildew in a shower or tub..diluted
2. I spray areas with mold to try and eradicate it
3. I like to wash my plastic shower curtain liners with a little in the washing machine
4. I sterilize second-hand items I purchase if they can be sanitized with a diluted solution
5. I clean my wood butcher or cutting boards with bleach and rinse immediately with HOT water-rub mineral oil into wood ones after
6. I love to disinfect trash cans with it inside out outside ones
7. My sister, Denise taught me to use it for fresh flowers-approximately 1/2 teaspoon per quart of water they will stay fresher longer
8. Be sure and sterilize garden tools-so you don’t spread a disease to the next plant-then rub a little oil on them so they don’t rust
9. Have you seen a “scratch or pitted” white sink-soak it in a little bleach…cleans it and the drain. Rinse with hot water.
10. I use it in all my laundry batches of “whites” rags, towels, dishrags, etc.
Please pick up an extra gallon or two of your favorite product this week for your “sanitizing” storage area. We just might need it…. keep in mind bleach typically only stores well for about 9-12 months. So, store only enough that will be able to use effectively.
