so this is kind of random, but i think it's important and easy enough, so i'll talk about it. bleach is a useful and also super awesome item that we should all have in our home storage and i'll tell you why:
- laundry uses and general household cleaning -- clorox has a list of uses that i never would have thought of
- you can use it to disinfect water and make it potable for drinking - see here for step-by-step instructions on how to do that
- and for the two very best reasons: it can kill and kinds of bacteria, viruses, fungi and other harmful bugs that you really don't want around you or your family (for a list of all that cannot stand up to bleach, click here)
- in the case of a pandemic -- believe it if you'd like, but many say it's only a matter of time -- you would really want some way to keep your home free of germs as best as possible, and bleach is the cheapest and most efficient way to kill germs
and of course, the lawyer in me can't leave out this word of caution: bleach is hazardous if ingested or inhaled, and should be used and stored with care, and out of reach of your children or pets.
