    Default Using Clorox Outdoor

    I remember someone talking about Clorox outdoor a month ago or so. It comes in a gallon and a half container, and I bought some at Home Depot. What I'm not sure about is how much of it to use in a 5 gallon mix. It appears to be a concentrated product, packaging says it makes 30 gallons. Just wondering if anyone out there is using it, and if so, how much per 5 gallons. I believe this is stronger then the "Ultra Clorox".

    Hey Mike, it is not that much stronger. If you look at the percentages on the Outdoors and the Ultra. Using a 5 gallon mix the way we do I would use one of the bottles of the Outdoors vs two bottles of the Ultra.

    2 gallons generac chlorine bleach,one cup sodium hydroxide(I use wolman deck strip) smart shopping and contractor discounts bring this to $2.50 instead of $5 and change.

    I called Clorox some time ago . Looks like outdoor may be same strength than regular but with gel like consistency . They are saying that outdoor is between 4 and 6 % . I have used it for some time and I was very happy with it. Price wise - not a great deal.

    Not truth. Call clorox and you will be shocked !
    Actually % varies in every bottle and goes down with the time , so ... sometimes clorox outdoor may be less % than regular one .......crazy but true and confirmed by clorox rep.
