Jim, you're correct that bleach is NOT an acid, however it is a corrosive product! I remember working in
a grocery store decades ago and had some spill on my jeans and it basically disolved the areas
that it came into contact with
. Here's a blurb from Cornell university.


SODIUM HYPOCHLORITE

Oh, and by the way old buddy I believe that hot water DOES freeze faster than cold water. That's my opinion, and
I'm sticking with it, after all you can't teach an old dog like me new tricks! Oh, and speaking of dogs (excluding Jay J, LOL):
