How do I Achieve 100 PPM of Chlorine in a Solution Using Household Ultra Bleach?


Household ultra bleach is stronger than regular household bleach, so this fact should be considered when making a sanitizing solution for cleaning areas of your home or business. For example, some state health departments recommend using a 100-PPM chlorine solution to sanitize surfaces where food is to be served. Once you have learned the correct amount of ultra bleach to add to water to make this solution, you will be able to make more sanitizing solution per gallon of bleach than you would with regular bleach.

Things You'll Need

  • ultra bleach
  • water-testing kit
  • Read the ultra bleach manufactures instructions for the safe handling of their product.

  • Fill a 1-gallon container with cold water.

  • Pour 1/2 to 3/4 tsp. of the ultra bleach into a measuring spoon

    and add it to the water.

  • Place a test strip from the water-testing kit into the mixture to verify that you have a 100-PPM chlorine solution.
