The color chart has ranges for sanitization (50-200ppm) & disinfection (500-800ppm). 800ppm is considered the maximum level for child safety in the event of ingestion.
Use our free Chlorine Bleach Dilution Calculator to calculate the amount of bleach & water needed to prepare any ppm levels. You can use any concentration of chlorine bleach to prepare a sanitizing/disinfecting solution but as an example the video shows an 8.25% solution diluted to produce 650ppm (the midway point of 500-800ppm for disinfection as shown on the color chart).

I write this positive review as a private researcher. My career spanned five decades at the University of California at Berkeley as a manager of shared research facilities. I treasure no nonsense solutions to problems. I am pleased to write a review for Indigo Instruments which is positive. The company's a pleasure to do business with and their test-strips have greatly simplified my efforts in Andean orchid preservation using asymbiotic in vitro propagation.

Thanks for e-mail explaining how you use them. "I use your strips to measure HOCl concentrations in solutions I make by hydrolyzing KCl. Plants like K but not Na; hence, I don't use Clorox as most tissue culture labs." Using hydrogen peroxide test strips in greenhouses is more popular, nice to know about a different application.
We operate an Adult Daycare program and our local supplier, for these strips, stopped carrying them in the strength we needed several years ago. I found Indigo online and we get fast, efficient service with good pricing. Website is very "User Friendly". Very satisfied with this Vendor.
Great feedback & good to know you found the website easy to use.
