Bleach Part Of Your Prepping Plans? You Need To Read This!
The folks over at Exxogear.com have a post on bleach that all preppers should read. Be sure and read the whole thing, but here are two things that caught my eye. For example, I thought this was a great idea:
“It’s a good idea to also write 8 drops/1 gallon because in an emergency situation, your brain may not be able to pull up all of the numbers you need. If you really want to be prepared, tape a plastic eye dropper to the jug, then when the bleach comes up in your rotation, just remove the eye dropper and tape it to the next new jug of bleach that you buy.”
Maybe YOU would remember the ratio, but would your loved ones if you weren’t there? And can you imagine trying to find a dropper in the middle of an emergency?
I’m always on the lookout for things I never knew. So I was glad to read this:
“Calcium hypochlorite aka pool shock – this is my favorite drinking water sanitization method. It comes in dry granules and has a shelf-life of 10+ years. The best part? It’s SUPER concentrated – one 1 lb. bag treats 10,000 gallons of water – and it’s just as effective as household bleach for both sanitizing drinking water and sanitization of surfaces.
I wrote an article awhile back that explains how to use pool shock. Oh, and did I mention that you can buy that 1 lb. bag for about 12 bucks? Doesn’t get any cheaper than that. I’m not much on math, but off the top of my head, that’s like 1/10 of a cent per gallon of drinking water. That’s about as close to free as you can get.”
Again, please read the entire post as there is more good information in there. Never assume you know it all!
