bleach for destroying bacteria ?
    #2486737 - 03/31/04 12:16 PM (13 years, 2 days ago)

I have a cake that has few little green spots on the bottom of the jar , and i was thinking before spawning to dunk in bleach . The problem is i can get it out only in pieces ( have shouldered jars ) ,

what percantage bleach:water should i use ???

I can buy liter of bleach in 5% concentration ( sodium hypochlorite ) , how much water should i add to this to dunk WBS chunks ( pieces ) ???

Does someone have experiences with this bleach dunking ?  :shiftyeyes:

Ratios depend on the situation but making a 1:150 bleach:water (1 portion of bleach for each 150 portions of water) solution and dunking for 20-24 hours is a good compromise in this case.
Make sure you don't use any contaminated material in the dunk process, discard bad chunks.

So i use just 1 ml of diluted bleach ( 5% sodium hypochlorite ) with 150 mililiter water ? Is that ok ?

What about using this 1:100 bleach ( 5% ) : water ??? Would that be ok ...

I hope i get a quick answer becose i was going right now to dunk ...

Your thoughts are correct.
1:100 is ok but it's somehow a strong mix. If you plan to use this ratio make sure you just let it sit for no more than 16 hours.
