1. Bleach is terribly dangerous to inhale, so it should never be atomized in a spray bottle unless you have a chemical breathing apparatus (not a particle mask). The term 'chemical pneumonia' is related to spraying bleach.
2. Bleach is not an effective antibacterial unless it is very, very fresh (under 6 months old) and since the product is undated and could have been sitting on the shelves or being trucked around longer than that...
3. Bleach is not an effective antibacterial even if it's brand-new-fresh unless it is left wet on the surface for more than 4 minutes. Yeah, so many people stand there making sure it stays wet, and time it.
Bleach is for bleaching things. If you don't want them bleached, use detergents --they're more effective at *removing* bacteria and washing it away, have less residue, are less harmful for you and the environment and don't destroy fabrics on contact.
