Domestos Thick Bleach Uses

Domestos uses are multi-faceted, with all of them focused on leaving your home germ-free and sparkling:

  • This powerful product is ideal to use on high-contact surfaces in the bathroom like toilet seats, toilet bowls, basins, baths, showers, and even the tiling.

  • When diluted, Domestos Thick Bleach can be used on wall tiles and flooring in the bathroom too.

  • You can also use this bleach in other areas of your home like kitchen sinks, kitchen surfaces, floors, and outside drains.

  • Diluted Domestos Bleach can be used to bleach dishcloths and sponges too.

How to use Domestos Thick Bleach at home?

There are three sets of Domestos instructions for use that can be followed:

For high-germ surfaces like toilets, sinks, and drains you can use Domestos directly on these surfaces, neat. Squirt the bleach directly onto the surface and leave it to act deeply for 5- 15 minutes. Rinse off with water after that.

For surfaces and floors in the kitchen and bathroom, you’ll need to dilute the bleach. Dilute 180 ml in 2L of water as the perfect floor sanitising solution. To clean dishcloths and kitchen sponges, dilute 90ml of bleach in 1L of water and leave them to soak in the solution for 15 – 30 minutes.

To bleach white fabrics for clothing simply dilute 20ml of bleach in 5L of warm water and allow the clothing to soak for 5 – 15 minutes. Wash normally in the washing machine thereafter.
