    if you clean showers and tubs you may want to cause all the 40 volume and acids in the world don't remove mold as well...

    No no and nope. Accident waiting to happen.

    My son Jason used it for one series of accounts that had solution dyed carpet, to very effectively remove red stains.

    "Somehow" it got into a spray bottle labled for deodorizing. Created a Chris Howell moment.

    We actually haven't run into a need for it I guess out in the field

    Bleach bottles are prone to leaking all over your truck. I only carry it when I need to bleach mildew stain.

    But: Bleach is not the best at killing anything, unless you also disrupt the biofilm. This video shows how I clean, before bleaching.

    If you don't carry it, you can't be blamed for it. Besides, bleach doesn't clean anything, it just burns stuff out.

    Used to do power washing back in the day I ran crews. Bought some carpet once when one of my brighter bulbs sprayed the carpet with the house wash.

    Sure do. We use it frequently to remove hair dye from carpet.

    Here's an example of an old hair dye stain at the Lombardy Hotel in NW Washington, DC.

    1. Bleach out hair dye
    2. Neutralize bleach
    3. Re-dye carpet

    In Fl. bleach not strong enough I use pool chlorine double the strength. Sold as industrial bleach. I purchase it wholesale at $1 gal my containers. Great for pressure cleaning and special need jobs. NOT carpet cleaning. jz.

    Jz, for houses, try hot tub crystals. You can jack them up to "Just Plain Stupid" if you have to, using hot water.

    Be careful about adding too much soap, it can react.

    Wouldn't it have been easier or cheaper to section that out? Or Does that size account get volume pricing?
