think about this before you make that anywhere spray

Last week I posted something about making your own "anywhere spray", a very diluted bleach solution. After talking to a friend and reading some various articles, however, I discovered that this homemade solution may actually lose its effectiveness over time, and it is better to make this fresh right before you want to use it. I wasn't aware of this, and will continue to research it, but I wanted to let you all know because I would hate to mislead anyone! I'm still wondering how store-bought "anywhere spray" can keep its effectiveness, and I don't have that answer yet. But I would hate to give out bad advice, so if you are making your own anywhere spray, you might want to read the following articles.

If anyone knows if this is truly an issue or not, please let me know. I obviously don't want to store a solution that quickly breaks down over time, but at the same time, it is not fun to have to make a fresh batch before each use!

Thanks! By the way, I love southernsavers.com!! I just found out about it a few days ago and went to Publix today...and saved $22.00! I'm actually looking forward to going to CVS soon, when they issue their new weekly ad, and, with some ECB, get some free stuff from now on - yay!
