Scented Clorox 54% Weaker Than Regular Clorox

Scented Clorox contains less than half the bleach of regular Clorox, reports Mouseprint.

Clorox offers scented disinfectants like Citrus Blend, Fresh Meadow, and Mountain Fresh, but these only contain 2.75% sodium hypochlorite. Old-skool Clorox contains 6%.

Don’t bother trying to find this out from the bottle. Clorox conveniently omits the ingredients label from the scented varieties.

Says Mouseprint, …if your whites smell better but look a little more dingy these days, now you may know why.” — BEN POPKEN
