I once tried to make my own bleach.

I got a 55 gallon plastic barrell and filled it with 50 pounds of pool chlorine tablets and water. I let it ferment for about a week. When I removed the lid a cloud of chlorine gas rose out of the container and I almost killed everyone within 100 yards.

Another of those "it's kind of funny now" stories, but it wasn't so funny at the time.

And to make matters worse, the "bleach" didn't work and left a horrible residue on everything.

All because I was trying to cut our bleach expenses from about $500 a year.
