When was bleach / javel water invented?
In 1785, the French chemist Berthollet discovered the decolourising properties of a solution of sodium hypochlorite in the bleaching of textiles. This happened in the village of Javel (now a district of Paris' 15th arrondissement). Hence the name Javel-water.
Why does swimming pool water sting the eyes?
In swimming pools, liquid chlorine in the water counteracts microbial pollution by reacting with the organic elements contained in the impurities transferred by swimmers. It is therefore possible for chlorinated compounds to form, which have an irritating or malodorous effect. In fact, this means that the quantity of liquid chlorine in the pool water is too small and not the other way around.
Is bleach dangerous for septic tanks?More about products Less about products

Can I use bleach to remove stains from the bottom of a cooking pot?
Cooking pots made of enamel or glass (not those made of stainless steel or aluminium) can be cleaned with 10° bleach. If your cooking pot is heavily stained, you can fill it with the bleach and leave it for 1 to 2 hours. Afterwards, pour away the water, fill the cooking pot with new water and the water boil to deodorise. Then, pour away the water again and rinse the cooking pot with tap water.
Can I mix bleach with other cleaning products/agents?

Can I use bleach to clean my refrigerator?
Yes, bleach deodorises and disinfects a refrigerator. Use 2 to 3 cl of 10° bleach per litre of water, leave for 5 minutes and rinse afterwards.
Can I mix bleach with a descaler?
No, never. If you mix bleach with an acid (such as a descaler), it creates a higly toxic chlorine gas. So if, by mistake, you use bleach and the bleach comes into contact with a descaler, leave the room where you're in as quickly as possible and, if possible, let the room ventilate for a few minutes.
