Homemade production of bleach disinfectant
... otherwise known chlorine, bleach is today one of the best know disinfectants and is commonly used to treat drinking water in european water main.
The proposed method makes use of basic materials that can be found easily, anywhere.
Kills off effectively, in just a few minutes, the bacillus of:
tetanus, cholera, typhus, carbuncle, hepatitis, entero virus, streptococcus, staphylococcus, etc.
How to produce bleach at home
Step one: preparing the materials
A- where cut off
B the candle wax
|Take 1.5 litres of water and add a handful of salt (about
Mix well until the salt is entirely dissolved into the water.
Pour the solution into the prepared bottle - right up to the top
Connect the tip and the negative (black) electrode, without the plastic covering must be placed into the water.
|From the charcoal bubbles of gas will develop
(chlorine)thet will then transform the salty water into disinfectant bleach. The smaller
the bubbles, the the better reaction. The wider the diameter of the carbon stick, the
smaller the bubbles will be.
Even the black wire will produce bubbles but they will be of hydrogen and will bot be of any use..
After about one hour of reaction, the bleach will be concentrate enough. The reaction can be left for up to two hours. By then the liquid solution will be yellowish and will produce the typical smell of chlorine..
|1 handful of salt
+ 1 litre of water
+ 1 hour
= 1 litre bleach
Here is an example of how to make water drinkable:
To disinfect 5 litres of water add enough bleach to get a slight taste of chlorine (about 2 to 3 tablespoons) mix very, very well - because it's the contact of the chlorine with the water molecules that disinfect, and not the density of chlorine in the water.
Try tasting the water again after about 20 minutes. You may add some more bleach to get the slight chlorine taste - this will ensure the water remains sterile until its use. Remember, chlorine will be consumed in the presence of bacteria and micro-organisms.
