Title: Liquid bleach replacement for LT
Post by: Stwood on August 26, 2019, 09:50:27 PM
Happened to run across some bleach *pills* today.
Evolve brand. 32 pills for $2.97 at Walmart. Apparently, one pill will make a gallon.
I haven't tried them yet, but even if it takes more than one pill, seems it's a good deal, especially for LT.
I've heard several times that liquid bleach doesn't store well. It looses it's uumph.
If so, these or other bleach pills should cure that problem.

Carry on.

I've not been able to find a definite answer on the shelf life of tablets. Best answer seems to be use or rotate out by the expiration date.

I haven't readily ran across that info either.
Holler if you find anything defiant.

The fine print on the bottle label is about unreadable for old geezers.  ??? I need to go over it again.

5 years for those isn't too bad. I think ours have a year on them.
