When talking of bleach production some people think it is one complex thing that can only be done by selected few. Well, I used to think way until I attended a seminar where we were thought how to produce so many of these products with big names.

In this post you will discover (simple way), a step by step guide on how to produce bleach that can compete with any brand in the market. It could be for commercial purpose or personal use.
