How To Purify/ Disinfect Water Using Clorox

How Many Drops Per Gallon? Here is a detailed discussion of how to safely use Clorox to disinfect water that may come from a contaminated source. You have to think about things like how long the Clorox has been standing and how to disinfect the water containers as well as knowing exact measurements.

I like that he mentions several times that, in an emergency situation you should be ready to step in and help your neighbors!

Agelbert NOTE: The active ingredient in chlorox is Sodium hypochlorite. I learned they make a LOT of that to sell as bleach from the waters of the Great Salt Lake in Utah. All you need to do to get NaClO  is run an electric current in salt water between two electrodes (they can be made quickly from D cell battery center carbon rods). You can use a car battery (you need DC current). If you are short of bleach in a survival situation but have DC current, you can always make sure pathogenic microbes in water are dead by making your own NaClO.

The concentration of salt in the water and the strength of the current will, of course, affect the product. Bear in mind that you MUST do this in a well ventilated area because some chlorine gas can be generated which is deadly stuff. There is a way to catch that with a test tube above one electrode (the other one is bubbling out Hydrogen) so you prevent being poisoned. The procedure is out there on the internet. Here's a primer on NaClO.

Sodium hypochlorite is a chemical compound with the formula NaClO. It is composed of a sodium cation (Na+) and a hypochlorite anion (ClO−); it may also be viewed as the sodium salt of hypochlorous acid. It is commonly known as bleach or liquid bleach, is frequently used as a disinfectant or a bleaching agent.


Why does bleach kill microbes so effectively? Because the ClO ion binds to proteins that bacteria need to grow. They stop growing and die. It has recently been learned that our very own immune system has a catch-22 set up in this regard. Our immune system generates ClO ions upon detecting a bacterial invasion. However, those ions damage our own cells too and cause chronic inflamation.  :P

So, if you must use bleach, remember tha,t even though you are a lot bigger than a bacterial colony, your cells can be attacked exactly the same way (our cells are ALWAYS undergoing mitosis - dividing - as in growth - even though our body isn't changing in size as adults because the new cells are replacements for the dead cells).

I would make sure I was taking natural anti-inflamatory foods like hemp seeds, hemp oil, curcumin or any one of many other natural foods out there that keep inflammation under control.

Prevention is always better than dealing with inflamation after the fact due to circulatory system problems.

Be well. Make sure your water is potable.

For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
