Is Bleach Actually Safe?

Household chlorine bleach is a simple mixture of water and sodium hypochlorite, which is a salt. It does not hurt the environment or contaminates any groundwater. It begins and ends as saltwater in a sustainable cycle. It also won’t damage any equipment or hard, nonporous surfaces, like stainless steel, plastics, glass, porcelain, glass ceramics, and other materials. It can be used to safely disinfect and clean restaurant countertops, toilets, floors, trash cans, phones, keyboards, desks, and light switches.

Cleaning Your Bathrooms

For showers and sinks, as well as toilets and tubs, bleach cleans and sanitizes your bathrooms from top to bottom. Mix about a half a ci of bleach with one gallon of water, then wipe the surfaces, wait about five minutes, then rinse off with warm water. To disinfect your toilet, pour a half a cup of bleach into the bowl and scrub off with a toilet brush. Wait around five minutes and then flush.

Cleaning Your Kitchens

Kitchen surfaces, especially in restaurants, can be cleaned with bleach. Dilute about a half a cup of bleach per gallon of water, apply the solution, wait around five minutes, rinse then air dry. Use the solution inside your fridge, sinks, and outside of all appliances. This will ensure all of your food for your carryout orders will be prone to any diseases or bacteria in your kitchen.
