Bleach for cleaning purposes-is it safe?
Bleach has been used for cleaning ever since one can remember. It has the capability to clean almost everything starting from your laundry, to the living room, and then your front lawn. Let us discuss a few advantages of bleach.
Benefits of Bleach
Cleaning is not always enough when you still leave behind some areas infested with infectious microorganisms such as viruses, bacteria and fungi are extremely harmful. Bleach can be used for disinfecting various substances and surfaces, thus keeping your family safe at the same time.
Getting rid of mildew
Bleach can be used to clean mildew; a disease of plants, characterized by a cottony, usually whitish coating on the surface of affected parts, caused by any various fungi. Not only does bleach help remove the mildew but it also helps to remove the smell after some time. This prevents mildew from growing and appearing.
Useful in washrooms
Cleaning washrooms means eliminating nasty smells, along with removing dirt, debris and other contaminants from the sinks, tubs, and toilets – bleach is the best product for this purpose.
Bleach can brighten wooden decks, floors, and fences. By adding a three quarter cup of bleach into a gallon of warm water and then scrubbing the solution on your wooden deck, wooden floor or fence, it will clean and brighten the wood. It can be used on other surfaces too such as cemented, metal, ceramics, plastics, wood, or glass, and so on.
Proceed with caution
Although bleach is a very efficient cleaning agent, it should be used with caution, as it has certain disadvantages too – take a look:
Wear rubber gloves while using bleach as it is very corrosive and could leave the skin irritated, dry, or cause allergic reactions.
If you suffer from asthma or other respiratory conditions, it is vital for you to wear a mask while cleaning with bleach, as the chemicals in it might aggravate the problem. The room you are working in should be properly ventilated.
Understand the risks if bleach is mixed with other cleaning products – it can release toxic gases that are detrimental to your health and the environment at the same time.
