Hello and GREETINGS from Dakar, Senegal, WEST AFRICA!
I'm American (from Pensacola, FL originally) but I now live in Africa. I was putting away my monthly shopping and realized that my peeps in America (and the rest of the world) have probably never seen these types of products, like I never had until I moved to Senegal from the US in 1999 and I've been using it in some form or fashion for over TWO DECADES!!
I've teamed up with my sister in Vermont and various other distributors across the country to bring these great items to YOUR MAILBOX!
THIS IS A LISTING FOR DRIED BLEACH GRANULES... I just ran the numbers on how much money I SAVE using dried bleach instead of liquid and it's literally over $300 a year!
2 bottles of bleach a week (2 3br homes) at about $3 and some change each is about $6 x 52 weeks is $312
With these dried bleach granules I use 1 package for one gallon which is $0.10 cents vs $315 basically, at the grocery store for bleach WATER that has about ten cents worth of bleach in it! lol!
$25.50 divided by 60 packages (what I will send you) is about $0.3 cents a package - using 1 packs per gallon that's 60 GALLONS OF BLEACH! for $25.50...
It's CRAZY how we get ripped off as consumers!
Now that I know this and this Chloride Bleach is mined, MANUFACTURED and made right here in Senegal too? I'll NEVER go back to bottled bleach again!
NOTE: The USPS is BACKED UP THE WAZOO w/AMAZON ORDERS making INTERNATIONAL MAIL DELIVERY SLOWER THAN EVER. PLEASE BE PATIENT - DELIVERY TIMES ARE RUNNING 4 to 6 WEEKS
We have 288+ sales since we started in November and our STELLAR 5 star ranking has now tanked to a 4.5 because unfortunately a minority of people don't understand one simple thing: We are the SHIPPERS and not the DELIVERY PERSON(S) - the United States Postal Service are the agents for DELIVERIES and we don't work for them. We are not responsible for slow service and they are the ones that will DELIVER your package - not me personally! (pic 8!)
So be patient and just know it's on the way! THANKS FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING!
Ok, now that we have that out of the way, what you are looking at are DOZENS of small packages of DRIED (not liquid) BLEACH.
Now that everyone is using more bleach than before to sanitize items you bring in the house, keeping floors/walls, kitchens & bathrooms clean(er) as well as for LAUNDRY, I thought I would share what I use for bleach here in Senegal, with YOU!
Do you see each of those black rectangular squares?
That is the beginning and the ending of one package of bleach so you can see the size. Also zoom in to get a better look so you understand EXACTLY what you are getting, it's amazing stuff really! I use 1 package for LARGE BOTTLE (5ltr) of water.
1 Gallon is 4 liters so you would only need 1 package per gallon MAX in the USA and would do for cleaning packages, put in a spray bottle for sanitizing and cleaning simple items as well as laundry, just like regular bleach.
I looked it up to see EXACTLY what it is and it turns out this is the SAME STUFF that's used to disinfect clinics and hospitals to clean surfaces, bed linens and instruments BUT IT'S MADE HERE IN SENEGAL! I knew that one of the biggest EXPORTS FROM SENEGAL was PHOSPHATES (basically bleach!) but I never made the connection until now! Isn't that wild?! It's mined from the Atlantic ocean here and some beaches are so naturally concentrated with phosphates I don't even go there because the water smells of chlorine and stings eyes and private areas!
Duh... it's from the phosphates - I still have an expat mindset sometimes after all these years! lol! That's why this is FAIR(ER) TRADE: Our items are Directly from West Africa TO YOU with NO MIDDLE MAN jacking up the prices!!
Anyway, it's used in cleaning heavily soiled lab equipment splattered in blood for example and I got these guidelines for using this product from the UNHCR.(UN High Commission on Refugees) website.
It's called various names: Calcium Hypochlorite, chlorinated lime, bleaching powder and liquid bleach, sodium dichloro-isocyanurate or NaDCC
Basically it's BLEACH but the granules have the STRONGEST CONCENTRATION of any type of cleaning disinfectant, including Lysol according to their charts... 70% CHLORINE BLEACH - so when we buy liquid bleach what we are buying is this particular chemical diluted in water and charge us a fortune.
I Did Not Know That!
These granules are PURE CHLORINE and RECOMMENDED by the UNHCR and other global organizations to clean their refugee tents and mobile hospitals. It makes sense because OBVIOUSLY they can't be lugging heavy and expensive jars of bleach every where they go.
They use THIS POWDERED BLEACH & JUST ADD WATER & NOW YOU CAN TOO!
From the UN site:
- The active chlorine content must always be verified on the packaging of the product available in order to rectify the doses if necessary.
- Solutions with a higher active chlorine content for certain special conditions can be obtained by adjusting the doses.
- The dilutions should always be made up just before the products are to be used, in non-metallic recipients.
- It is normal that there be a calcium hypochlorite and calcium chloride deposit in the solutions (use from the top).
MY NOTE: it falls to the bottom when you pour it in, just swish it around. Personally I use it with hot hot water so it dissolves easily to mop my floors and for cleaning. For clothing and general sanitizing I make it up in 1 gallon batches using 1 package for every mop bucket and in my dishwater.
FOR ONE GALLON BUCKETS (just use an old plastic bleach jar and refill with the dried bleach): 1 packages at the most is fine. It's 70% PURE CHLORINE so you don't need a lot and you'll just waste it using more than that.
As I said above I use 1 packs for 1 gallon which is a little more and that's very strong, you can SMELL IT after you mix it in the bottle and just shake before using again to be sure it's mixed well.
If you go thru a gallon of bleach a week you will save HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS using 1 packages of dried bleach and your own water...
AFTER ALL, THAT'S ALL LIQUID BLEACH IS ISN'T IT? WATER!
Remember: always prepare the solutions with clean water and you're good to go! .
If the COSTS of CLEANING SUPPLIES have been running you ragged... BUY THIS DRIED BLEACH! Shown here is is a little over 1lb of product and it should last you close for FOREVER!
The price is like everything else we sell here at SenegalStyle AfricanHerbal:
$5.50 for a sample package (2 GALLONS) or $25.50 including shipping for the family size (60). $125.50 for WHOLESALE DISTRIBUTORS for 1100 packs!) a total of 1100 GALLONS OF BLEACH!
If THAT doesn't last you half of FOREVER... then you're using too much bleach!
