On Patios and paths I use Hyperchloride, £12 for 25 Litres, mix 5 to 1 very economical and works a treat, a local farmer put me onto it some years ago 

 

Do you mean hypochlorite?  Sodium hypochlorite is bleach and  is a dangerous, corrosive substance.

Gordon, It's a similar product to what I use  "Rhino Goo"  spray on hose off, stubborn dirt does need a light brushing, I have been using it for years with great results

 

Got some Rhino Goo today it no longer says Caravans on label, supplier says it is the same stuff in the bottle as when it did say Caravans on label.

It is commonly sold as a patio cleaner.  A lot of commonly encountered chemicals found and used around the house and garden are ‘dangerous’ (Injurious, destructive, corrosive etc) if used inappropriately including bleach and bleach based products.
 

We still buy them (and use them according to the instructions supplied) without ill effect.

 

Quote

Sodium hypochlorite is most often encountered as a pale greenish-yellow dilute solution commonly known as liquid bleach or simply bleach, a household chemical widely used (since the 18th century) as a disinfectant or a bleaching agent.
 

The compound in solution is unstable and easily decomposes, liberating chlorine, which is the active principle of such products. Indeed, sodium hypochlorite is the oldest and still most important chlorine-based bleach.

True, but the systematic name used by chemists is sodium chlorate(1), and has been since, I believe, 1963.

But the common name persists for this and many other compounds.

I buy mine in 25 litre drums from a Farmers Co-op for about £14, Hyperchlorite  is what it says on the drum

Sodium chlorate is banned for use in a weedkiller. Sodium hyperchlorite, as Bejay has said above is quite simply common bleach and is found in Domestos and even in Milton.

Used by litres / gallons in industries such as paper making and textile bleaching and dyeing.

There are chemically 3 "sodium chlorates"

Sodium chlorate(I) = hypochlorite (bleach)

Sodium chlorate(V) = chlorate (weedkiller)

Sodium chlorate(VII) = perchlorate (propellants)

 

Hence the systematic naming systems used by chemists.

Sorry I took this thread off topic.
