How To Mix Bleach For Pressure Washing


What’s up, everyone? Justin here from Forever Self-Employed. In today's video, we’re diving into the essentials of mixing bleach for pressure washing. Technically, if you’re mixing bleach, you’re soft washing, but for SEO purposes, we’ll use the term pressure washing throughout this post. Before we get into the nitty-gritty, I’ve got a quick marketing tip: understanding SEO and keywords is crucial for ranking your Google My Business and website, which will drive more leads to your business.

The Importance of Proper Bleach Mixing

Mixing bleach correctly is vital for a successful and safe pressure washing job. Using the wrong ratios can lead to property damage or wasted chemicals—two things we want to avoid at all costs. That’s why we’re introducing a free tool that calculates the right bleach-to-water ratios every time, ensuring you get the perfect mix for your specific cleaning needs.

Introducing the Free Mix Calculator

When you download Quote IQ (link in the comments and description), not only can you send estimates, invoices, collect payments, and keep track of customers—all for free—but you also get access to a batch mix chemical calculator. This tool helps you achieve the perfect bleach mix ratios for various surfaces, ensuring you clean effectively without causing damage.

How to Use the Mix Calculator

Here’s a quick guide on how to use the mix calculator:

  1. Target Percentage: Enter the desired bleach mix percentage.
  2. SH Percentage: Enter the strength of your sodium hypochlorite (SH) solution.
  3. Tank Size: Enter the size of your mixing tank or container.

For example, for a house wash, you might want a 1.5% mix using a 12% SH solution in a 5-gallon bucket. The calculator will tell you that you need 4.4 gallons of water and 0.6 gallons of bleach. If you’re doing a roof wash with a 5% mix in the same setup, you’ll need 2.9 gallons of water and 2.1 gallons of SH. The calculator can handle any tank size and SH percentage, making it incredibly versatile and easy to use.


To enhance your cleaning process, we recommend using SOUTHEAST SOFTWASH CHERRY "SOUTHERN SLANG" SURFACTANT. This bleach additive is perfect for all softwash applications, including roof cleaning, house washing, and concrete treatment. It's a concentrate that mixes at a 15-gallon water to 1-gallon jug ratio. For blend manifolds, follow the jug’s instructions and adjust with your manifold. For batch mixing, use 1-2 oz per gallon of SH.
