Just How Useful Is This Stuff?
It's the same in any natural disaster. As the shock wears off and the days wear on, the biggest demand is for drinking water. Time after time, relief crews hand out free Clorox Bleach with simple instructions: use it to kill bacteria in your water and you'll have purified water to drink.
Without water and electricity, even everyday tasks are tough. In lieu of steaming hot water, sanitize dishes with a little Clorox Bleach. Whether you use Clorox Bleach in an emergency or for everyday chores, it's always an environmentally sound choice. After its work is done, Clorox Bleach breaks down to little more than salt and water, which is good news for everyone.
This short primer on using simple household Clorox to purify your water and sanitize much of what comes into contact with it (i.e. water jugs or dishes, etc.) offers a quick read packed with enough info to keep you and yours safely hydrated and clean.
