Clorox Plus® Splash-Less Bleach

Advice from Dr. Laundry
Q.

I just bought the Clorox Plus® Splash-Less Bleach and it is watery, is that normal?

A.

I am not sure what you mean by “watery”.  Clorox® Splash-Less Liquid Gel Bleach should be a clear, lime-yellow liquid that is slightly thicker than water.  The thickeners that make it easier to pour with less splashing do not make it pour similarly to, say, olive oil.  It is closer to pouring freshly mixed gelatin (i.e. JELL-O®) before it has had a chance to cool and set.  Depending on what you were expecting, it could seem watery, but in a side-by-side comparison with Clorox® Regular Bleach2, it should be thicker. 

What do you prefer:  Clorox® Splash-Less Liquid Gel Bleach or Clorox® Regular Bleach2?
