Why not just double the dilution of scented versions for proper disinfecting? To achieve 6%??

Scented or unscented, these toxic chemicals are killing us!! Read about the effects on our brains, lungs and other organs. There are environmentally safe alternatives. We have been sold a "bill of goods" by the cleaning products industry. They are all harmful to our health! We should insist that these manufacturers produce products that are not harmful to us!!!

Have you noticed that on the label of a regular clorox bottle it does not mention or list the word "disinfectant". What gives?

I just found out yesterday regarding the non-disinfecting quality of Clorox scented bleaches. While I am disappointed that there is not a disclaimer on the scented bottles (at least not where it's noticible, if indeed there is one at all and I am not going to check cuz I'm stubborn) regarding the fact that they do not DISINFECT, only DEODORIZE, I don't feel I was 'duped', only a little dumb for not reading the backside of the label. Nowhere on the instructions does it mention 'disinfecting' instructions, only 'deodorize' instructions. So, the good news is that I believe that, by an un-intentional 2-year experiment with first, Mountain Fresh and then Fresh Linen Clorox, that I have PROVEN that we will not die if we don't disinfect our counter tops after we cut up chicken or repot plants on it, or if the toilet bowl gets cleaned but not disinfected, and if the cat box only smells like it got disinfected, etc. I think that while there is no doubt that we must use good cleaning procedures, soap and hot water are as good as they were in my grandma's days, and we can all back off a bit on the germ-scare tactics the advertisements use to entice us to purchase all those chemical products that kill germs and make it hard to breath because of the fumes. I will switch back to regular bleach for the whites and the bathroom. I like the way Fresh Linen smells - so I think I will keep using it to 'deodorize' my kitchen. It's much better than all the sprays made that claim to do the same and don't, at least for very long - they just overpower my lungs when I try to breath following the least little spray. Thank you clorox for giving me a choice - but it would have been nice if you would included a courtesy warning on the labels NOT to use for disinfecting or whitening laundry.

If it doesn't clean clothes as well, and it doesn't disinfect, then WTF are you supposed to use it for? @ VICTORIA: Most people don't take bottles of bleach and let children inhale the vapor. Also, I was unable to locate any scholarly papers on your aforementioned study.
