The question of whether or not bleach is a good sterilizing agent
has come up, so I asked my wife, who uses it to sterilize her goat-milking
equipment. She says that the only food-grade bleach commonly available
is unscented Clorox. Other bleaches may be just as safe, but apparently
only Clorox has obtained FDA approval. Anything with fragrance, "super-
duper whiteners and brightners", etc should be avoided in any case.
