Liquid Bleach Production Cost Analysis 2020

Liquid bleach, colloquially called bleach, is a general chemical household product that is made up of a dilute solution of sodium hypochlorite or NaClO and other secondary ingredients. It is a chlorine releasing bleaching agent that is most commonly used to whiten clothes or to remove stains. It also works as a disinfectant to kill germs, as well as for numerous other uses. The term may now also be applied more generically to any liquid bleaching agent for laundry, regardless of its core composition, for example, peroxide-based bleaches.

The active agent in most liquid bleach is sodium hypochlorite. It provides the product a light greenish-yellow tinge and its notable chlorine smell. Sodium hypochlorite or NaClO is also utilised as an oxidising agent for organic products. In the petrochemical industry, sodium hypochlorite is used in petroleum products refining. Significant amounts of sodium hypochlorite are also used as a disinfectant in water and wastewater treatment and sanitary equipment. 

In liquid bleach for household purposes, sodium hypochlorite is present in a lower concentration of 5% or less by weight. Industrial liquid bleach, however, has a more concentrated presence of the chemical. Sodium hydroxide or caustic soda is also present in liquid bleach to make the solution alkaline. Table salt or sodium chloride might also be present in the product.
