Q. I work in a nursery where we soak our bottles in a bleach/water solution after washing them with soap, as per the instructions on the bleach container. What I would like to know is how long can this bleach solution continue to be used before it’s too degraded?
Dilute bleach baths have been used for decades to treat moderate to severe in humans, but it has not been clear why they work. According to work published by researchers at the in November 2013, a very dilute (0.005%) solution of sodium hypochlorite in water was successful in treating skin damage with an component caused by , excess sun exposure or aging in . Mice with given daily 30-minute baths in bleach solution experienced less severe skin damage and better healing and hair regrowth than animals bathed in water. A called (NF-κB) is known to play a critical role in inflammation, ageing, and response to radiation. The researchers found that if NF-κB activity was blocked in elderly mice by bathing them in bleach solution, the animals' skin began to look younger, going from old and fragile to thicker, with increased . The effect diminished after the baths were stopped, indicating that regular exposure was necessary to maintain skin thickness.
Color safe bleach is a chemical that uses hydrogen peroxide as the active ingredient (to help remove stains) rather than sodium hypochlorite or chlorine. It also has chemicals in it that help brighten colors. Hydrogen peroxide is also used for sterilization purposes and water treatment, but its disinfectant capabilities may be limited due to the concentration in the colorsafe bleach solution as compared to other applications.
Teeth whitening done by your dentist can get teeth brighter faster. The bleaching solution is usually much stronger than at-home kits. Also, heat, light, or a combination of the two may be used to speed and intensify the whitening process.
