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.
