    Default 24 hr bleach



    I couldn't tell you for sure. That's just what I've been taught through my

    county and state agency. (I do child care and this is law that we have to have

    a fresh mixture everyday. Even the restaurants (in Minnesota) have to do this.

    That's all I can tell you without digging my books out and quoting it.

    > I also do the same with actual bleach wipes (except that bleach is only good

    for 24 hours once it's mixed or out of the original bottle)<



    I'm curious, I have never heard that. Why is it only good 24 hours. I keep a

    bottle of bleach and water spray and use it for a few weeks at a time and the

    bleach still seems effective. I got some on a shirt last night and it bleached

    it. Laura

    I worked in the child care field in Florida and the law was the same.

    The reason is that after 24 hours the bleach starts to chemically

    break down, and to create bacteria within the bottle with the water.

    So when you use your bleach water after 24 hours you are no longer

    disenfecting. It may still bleach your clothes but it is spreading

    bacteria as opposed to removing it after 24 hours in the bottle. Hope

    this answers your question. (BTW...we were given this information from

    the gentleman that came and did our cpr/first aid class)
