  • Not often. It is damaging to allot of surfaces. I wash whites in it when they need it. Much better things than bleach to sanitize surfaces anyways.

  • I don't. The fumes are awful, and vinegar does a great job. I prefer to use cleaners that are safe around my kids and pets. Unless there is a nasty infection that makes its way into our house, no cleaning with bleach for us.

  • I usually bleach everything down like once a week and then use baking soda and vinegar to keep it all clean afterwards. Disinfecting wipes if needed.

  • I use clorox clean up and comet for the toilet. for the bathroom sink I use comet to scrub it out. I then rinse it off.. I do that daily. I don't like having kids that are sick.

  • I use it a lot in the bathroom, wash out the tub, rinse it and then fill it with bleach water for awhile, I put it in the toilet. I know there are better things, but i just feel better when the bathroom smells like bleach, it just smells clean to me.

  • I only use Clorox cleanup in the kitchen every once in a while. I can't stand the smell. The cat, however, reacts to it like catnip. She rolls in it and purrs. I think the bleach has killed a few too many of her brain cells.

  • I used to use it a lot. I love the smell of bleach. I do not use it too much anymore. I will scrub my floors with it once in awhile now.
