I read a lot of teks useing bleach,what is the percent of Hypochlorite in the jugs you buy ? In Canada we have two kinds the cheap stuff is 3% and the good 5.25%.This could cause a lot of trouble if the concentration is not right???

Regular stuff in U.S. is 6%, I believe. Get the stronger stuff.

You really only need to make a bactericidally equivalent to 200 mg/L of water (200 ppm) or more of available chlorine as hypochlorite. Allow at least 1 minute of contact before wiping your surfaces or instruments dry with a clean single service paper towel. Most of the bleaches I have used are approx. 5.25% hypochlorite here in the US.
