    Myths & Facts about Bleach
    All Clorox® disinfecting products containing bleach are EPA-registered. #1 Fact | Bleach does not form dioxins.When used for cleaning and disinfecting, bleach cannot form dioxins. This is supported by several independent studies, including those by European environmental agencies. To form a dioxin, you need the type of organic building blocks that are typically found in the pulp bleaching process, which are not found in a household setting.

    #2Fact | There is no free chlorine in household bleach.The concerns about chlorine have extended to household bleach. Even though bleach has an entirely different chemistry – it is derived from sodium chloride (common table salt) and there is no free chlorine in the final product – bleach is commonly referred to as chlorine bleach. It's wrong to call household bleach chlorine bleach because it has an entirely different chemistry.

    Household bleach is derived from sodium chloride – common table salt. During household use, Clorox® Bleach breaks down to mostly salt and water. Clorox purchases chlorine and makes household bleach by bubbling the chlorine into a solution of water and sodium hydroxide. During this process, all of the chlorine is converted to a sodium hypochlorite solution.

    #3Fact | Laundering with bleach does not harm aquatic life.Everyday consumer and commercial use of bleach as directed in laundering clothes or in disinfecting surfaces around the home or public places such as schools and hospitals does not produce harmful effects on the environment. Bleach degrades primarily into salt and water

    #4Fact | Clorox® bleach does not damage equipment and surfaces.The majorities of Clorox® bleach products contains anticorrosion agents and, when used as directed, are safe for use on a variety of hard, nonporous surfaces, including stainless steel, plastics, glazed ceramics, glass, porcelain and other materials. Use bleach with confidence to clean and disinfect countertops, floors, toilets, sinks, trash cans, keyboards, phones, light switches and desks.

    #5Myth | Bleach harms the environment. Household bleach begins and ends as salt water in a fully sustainable cycle. There's a significant difference between "bleaching" – the name associated with the manufacturing of paper products – and household bleach.

    During consumer use and disposal, bleach quickly breaks down primarily to salt and water. Bleach does not contaminate ground water because it does not survive sewage treatment – either in municipal sewage treatment plans or in septic systems.
