      Rob; All,
      I wrote my friend to resend article on the Clorox. He responses:

      Hi Jane,
      As long as the Ultra Bleach isn't perfumed, I see no problem with it as
      long as you rinse it off real good.
      We use a citrus based product named Fit that you can find near the fruit &
      vegetable section of most any supermarket.

      A Bath for Your Fruits & Vegetables?

      Here is what I sent out previously.


      You can make your own bleach by purchasing swimming pool "burn out" or
      "shock treatment."
      It must be only 65% Calcium Hypochlorite with no additional anti-fungal or

      In an extremely well ventilated area, thoroughly mix 24.5 grams
      (approximately 10 Tablespoons) of powder to one gallon of water for a 5.25%
      bleach solution.

      Five pounds of dry pool bleach costs about $10-15, which will make about 92
      gallons of bleach, that will sterilize 706,560 gallons of clear water, or
      353,280 gallons of cloudy water. If you allocate 3 gallons per person per
      day for drinking, food preparation, and sanitation, $15 will take care of
      100 people for one year! Not a bad deal.

      I wrote to Clorox and received this response.

      Mr. Dallas Tohill

      Dear Mr. Tohill:

      Thank you for asking about the use of Ultra CLOROX liquid bleach.

      In case of an emergency, we recommend boiling water for 1 minute. When
      boiling is not possible, we recommend filtering water to let suspended
      particles settle out. Pour off the clear water and add Ultra CLOROX liquid
      bleach as follows:

      1 teaspoon Ultra CLOROX bleach per 5 gallons water
      16 drops Ultra CLOROX bleach per 1 gallon water
      4 drops Ultra CLOROX bleach per 1 quart water

      Wait 30 minutes. The water should have a slight chlorine odor. If not,
      repeat dose and wait 15 minutes, then sniff again. Use only Ultra CLOROX
      bleach, not a scented bleach.

      I hope this information is helpful. If you have additional questions,
      please feel free to contact us. Again, thank you for giving me this
      opportunity to discuss our product.
