I cannot believe how high bleach is these days. It is nothing but chlorine. I remember when you used to be able to get the generic kind for about a dollar. I went to the Dollar General the other day and their generic brand was three dollars per gallon. That is outrageous! We have an above ground swimming pool and the chlorine tablets are even high for it too. I wander why chlorine is so expensive and why the price spiked so quickly for it? I am thinking of switching to some other alternative for bleach. Do you any of you have any ideas? I just think that is way to expensive to have to pay for a gallon of nothing but bleach. How are the prices for bleach in your area?
