Not hard. Salt water, two jars, 12 volts, and a rag. Enjoy!

I saw a couple videos where someone used a similar method and the only way they could get it to work well was to boil the seawater down so it was about 10% salt. Once they had the lye and bleach they also made lime from burning sea shells.

After that they were able to do a lot of interesting things by mixing the lye, lime, bleach, and salt to make a lot of useful products, glues, and cement and plaster are the ones that come to mind at the moment.

Bleach on the average is 3-6%

Buy a can of "Pool Blast" which is a powder you mix with water. You can make any percentage yo wish. There is no expire date either.

Storing it is difficult to do. It tends to eat up anything nearby.

I found something a lot easier. Never tried them before. But I got some anyway. Just 6.50 so I thought i'd give them a try. 1 tablet to a gallon of water so in essence you have 32 gallons. Not bad for 6.50. Just hope it works like it's supposed to.

Sunny Beaches! I just puled the container down form where its been for 12 years. The plastic jug is split, and the entire area of preps smells like clorox.

I have some glass jars with sir tight lids. Thanks for the warning

These look great! I wonder what the shelf life is for the tablets. Thatís a lot of bleach for the money in a small container.

The seller says one complete bottle is equal to a gallon of bleach then later says 21 tablets. The gallons on the instructions are a suitable strength for mopping and etc.

Storing concentrated powdered bleach is a awful prep that needs go away. It outgasses and eats everything. I know this from experience. It's not worth storing because of its effects and risks. In a world of "paranoid" survivalist this prep doesn't make sense.

I invested in one of these to address long-term chlorine requirements:

It's not inexpensive, but given that you can generate years worth of chlorine with only salt and a 12V battery I think it's worth it.

The powder is now in safe glassed air tight glass jars.

Bleach degrades over time. The power, when kept dry does not.

You keep your 3% household beach for a year and its not 1%

It will eat the rubber shortly and outgas everything around it. I tried two ways of storing it and both failed. I actually forgot about this prep and found it when I realized my garage wall locker was rusting.

I cleaned everything, moved them to a warm dry place, and will monitor the seals.
I have some vulcanized rubber made seals. It will take a NY minute to eat though.
Besides the powder level is inches below the seal.

If it makes you feel better I had them two bagged into gallon Mason jars. It ate through within two years. Had it double wrapped in a cooler wrapped with duck tape and it made a hole through the cooler when I found it five years later. Sorry it's one of those preps I have actual experience with.

I had some near a rim for my classic T120 Triumph motorcycle and it ate the lid off the container and the vapors took the chrome off the rim.
