Research Facts
Bleach is a chemical that removes colour or whitens and has strong bacteriocidal properties; used for disinfecting and sterilizing. Common chemical bleaches include household "chlorine bleach", a solution of approximately 3-6% sodium hypochlorite (NaOCI) and a "oxygen bleach", which contains hydrogen peroxide or a peroxide - releasing compound such as sodium perborate or sodium percarbonate.
