Bleach is a commonly used cleaning product. It's used for laundry... usually to lighten or clean white clothes. It's also good for sanitizing. Usually it should not be used at the "full strength" that it's packaged out.
Do NOT mix bleach and ammonia. The chemical mix creates a dangerous gas.
Keep out of the reach of children.
