Terminology Tuesday - Bleach

(Note: I think it's important to know the terminology and words used when learning any new business including mobile home investing. I came up with 'Terminology Tuesday' as a way to go over the terminology used in the mobile home business. It's important to know the terminology when talking to people in the business so you're all on the same page).

According to Wikipedia:

"A bleach is a chemical that removes colors or whitens, often via oxidation. Common chemical bleaches include household chlorine bleach, a solution of approximately 3–6% sodium hypochlorite (NaClO), and oxygen bleach, which contains hydrogen peroxide or a peroxide-releasing compound such as sodium perborate, sodium percarbonate, sodium persulfate, tetrasodium pyrophosphate, or urea peroxide together with catalysts and activators, e.g., tetraacetylethylenediamine and/or sodium nonanoyloxybenzenesulfonate. Bleaching powder is calcium hypochlorite. Many bleaches have strong bactericidal properties, and are used for disinfecting and sterilizing."

In a past "Terminology Tuesday" post, I had mentioned how I've learned a lot from my cleaning crews regarding the cleaning product industry. What I've learned is that most cleaning products are just additional product lines - it's not necessary to have one cleaning product for the kitchen, one for the bathroom, one as a degreaser, etc. It can all be done with fewer products.

Bleach is one cleaning product that is very versatile - it can be used to clean and sterilize a lot of different things. The thing about bleach is is that is really cleans and kills bacteria - it's great to disinfect and to sterilize. The only thing about bleach is being around it for long periods of time - it's really powerful (the smell) as well as being a toxic in nature.

In the past, when I'm around bleach my eyes to tend to get red and water up. It's best to have a lot of ventilation when being around bleach. Though it can be toxic in nature and very strong to be around, it's a major cleaning product used by one of my cleaning crews.

To show you the cleaning power of what bleach can do, I'd like to share with you a few short videos:
