Keep in mind also that you almost cut off your nose to spite your face 
when you purchase large (gal/4l) quantities of liquid bleach as each 
time you open the bottle more oxygen (and other gasses and moisture 
from the air) enters the solution and begins to dilute it.  By the time 
you are half way thru the bottle, you may well have half the strength 
that you would have had when you first opened it.

A dry chorine bleach is more reliable if you want to get serious about 
the amount of chlorine you want in the solution for the rhizomes, or 
any other use for that matter, as the dry chlorine doesn't begin to 
loose chlorine atoms to the air until it mixes with an aqueous liquid.

So much for the Chemistry 101 lesson for the day!
