I use regular liquid pool chlorine for a few of my household tasks. Here are two of them:
Refilling my “Tilex” bottle – I like Tilex for cleaning my showers. Reading the ingredients for “Tilex”, it looks to me like “Tilex” is the same thing as liquid pool chlorine. So I refill my “Tilex” bottle with liquid pool chlorine, and it costs much less.
Getting impossible stains out of whites – If I have a white garment that I have already spot treated with conventional spot removers, and have already soaked in bleach, with no success, I turn to liquid pool chlorine as a last resort. Before I give up and throw the garment in the trash, I spray it with “Tilex”, or liquid pool chlorine. Sometimes that is just what it needs. Liquid pool chlorine is a highly concentrated version of the type of bleach we use for laundry. I only use this as a last resort, as sometimes, it can ruin the garment. But if I am ready to throw it out anyway, I have often been pleased to find that I was able to salvage the white garment with liquid pool chlorine or “Tilex”.
Always be careful to keep chemicals away from your skin and eyes.
