Why does bleach evaporate faster than water?

Bleach can be many things. In general though, solutions evaporate more slowly than pure liquids, because they have lower vapour pressures so we would not expect this to be true.

How do you sterilize ground with chlorine bleach?

You can sterilize the ground if you have diseased soil, but only for that reason. If you sterilize the soil you kill the bacteria that is needed for most root systems to develop a healthy plant.

Bleach will not sterilize soil as it is nuetralized by organic material.

Can drinking bleach kill you?

I'm a nurse and used to work in the ER. We would get kids in who had ingested bleach or adults who drank it inadvertently. It won't kill you but if it's not diluted at all it can be corrosive to your throat and burn if you have open sores in your mouth.

Let's just say that drinking bleach is'nt good for you.

yes if you drink enough because it contains all types of chemicals and poisons

Yes drinking bleach can and will kill you.

Can you put real bleach in your hair to bleach it?

i think i would do it, if my parents wouldn't mind, and if i could get the bleah without them noticing...i might do it tommmorrow, i pierced my lip today by myself it is pimPPP

Not only will it turn yellow, it will become really brittle and break off. However, depending on what look you're going for, it might not bother you. I know this because I tried it when I was a teenager. (Oh to be young and punk rock.) If you're after a cheap bleach job, go to a beauty supply place and get some powered bleach and developer. The whole thing is probably less than $10. It'll still wreck your hair, but not quite so badly. Anyhow, if you're really intent on bleaching your hair (with Clorox or "real" hair bleach) get yourself some heavy-duty conditioner. You'll need it.

Answeryes but it will turn yellow.. AnswerNo you really couldn't because bleach will burn your scalp and give you an ugly rash. Your hair will turn eather white or blond/ yellow.

Hepatitis

Will hand sanitizer kill Hepatitis C virus?

Not even bleach will kill the Hep C virus most of the time. Hepatitis C can live at least 3 days outside the body (up to a week in some cases) - heat inactivation (autoclave) will kill the virus.

You are much better off washing your hands with soap and water.

What kind of caulk do you use to fix a pool filter?

You cannot caulk a swimming pool filter of either stainless steel, fiberglass or plastic. Does this filter have a crack in the main body? Is this filter leaking at the flange or where the two main components come together? How old is the unit? It may be covered under warranty.

Can you use bleach water to clean animal urine off the floor or does it make the chlorine bleach that's toxic to the animal and humans?

You can use it for hard surfaces mainly by using 1:1 ratio or 1 gallon of water and 1 teaspoon of bleach, but I would recommended wiping the puddles up first. You could possibly use it on carpet but could discolor your carpet. If it were me I would use a little less bleach and test it first. I might use it in a carpet cleaner, at a reduced amount of bleach .

What does Shock do for a pool and how often do you use it?

Shock is a very active chlorine that is designed to quickly attack and kill microscopic organic growth (algae). When my pool starts to become slightly cloudy and is no longer crystal clear, I know that algae is just starting to grow. When this happens, I know it's time to shock the pool. Algae grows faster in warm water. When my pool temp is 90 degrees I know it will need shock every 7 - 10 days. In the Spring and Fall when the water temp is 65 to 70 I can get by monthly. How often you shock depends on many factors. When I look at my bag, it says to shock once a week and it may have to be done more if there is rain or a lot of swimmers because of bacteria growth. You should test your pool water about 3 times a week and shock as needed.

If the pool appears to be green and slippery what chemical should you use first PH reduction or chlorine?

How about Shock and Sanitizer?? Deal with the pH later. Just get started though before it's too late. I'm a first time pool owner. I recently had my vinyl pool's water (12'x3') turn green (as did I when I pulled the solar blanket back!). I only had the solar blanket on the pool when I ran out of sanitizer...and then it rained. :o( Within a day or so the algae went rampant. Since I wasn't about to drain 1700 gallons of water, especially since it had just happened, I had my work cut out for me!

I went back and forth with sanitizer and shock (lots of it), running the filter continuously for a couple of days. I tested it regularly during this time until the water cleared and the levels tested ok. I've brushed the walls, skimmed the surface, will be vacuming the floor, replacing the filter and making small tweaks in chemical levels. I called the pool mfg. and told them my story. They basically agreed that after all I've done, as long as the water is clear, the levels test ok, the pool is ok for use.

I'm going in the pool today for the first time since all this happened (and since surgery) and I can't wait. You shouldn't either! Good luck!

Warm in Michigan...

First Aid
Chlorine Bleach

What will happen to you if you drink bleach?

If a small amount is drunk, the surface of the mouth and esophagus would be damaged and the acid in the stomach would react the the bleach, causing an upset stomach. Some chlorine gas will be released, which could damage your throat, lungs, and nose as it escapes. Depending on what additives, such as fragrances, is in the bleach, liver and kidney damage could result.

If a larger amount of bleach is drunk, it could result in major damage to the stomach and possibly death.

First aid: Drink 4-8 ounces of water or milk to dilute the bleach and DO NOT INDUCE VOMITING. Seek medical help immediately.

Can you use household chlorine bleech to chlorinate a swimming pool?

yes, but it takes many gallons of clorox A: Clorox is only 5%. You would have to use 5 to10 as much of it then swimming pool liq. chlorine at 12.5%. The answer would be NO. You would end up using algaecides and other products in order to maintain the water. It could get quite costly for you.

Does exposure to chlorine bleach cause loss of voice?

If the vocal cords are damaged, this can indeed happen. Usually, I would expect this to be related to oral consumption of chlorine bleach, which is potentially lethal. Consider risk for self-harm.

Can I use non chlorine bleach for toilet stain?

Yes, this does work rather well, however, you need to ensure that the water is very hot before adding oxyclean to the toilet. I generally pre-warm the toilet bowl slowly by adding several buckets of hot water to the bowl over about a 15 minute time period.

Bleach spray for use in decontaminating surfaces one should combine equal parts of bleach and water?

The standard solution used in health care facilities for surface disinfection is a 1:10 solution of bleach and water (or a ~9% bleach solution). Some sources recommend discarding after one week, due to a breakdown in stability. For easy household mixing, add seven tablespoons of common household bleach to one quart of tap water.
