For sale in the UK - "Domestos Original".

Is this stuff ok to use for the BBB method? I've had a look in a couple of supermarkets and i can't seem to find anything with just Sodium Hypochlorite in it.

Ingrediants
Disinfectant: Sodium Hypochlorite 4.8g per 100g,<5% Chlorine Based Bleaching Agent ,Non-Ionic Surfactants ,Soap ,Perfume

It's not great to use because of the extra items in it (surfactants, perfume). In the U.K. there are several sources of chlorinating liquid such as Champion Ultrapure Chlorine Liquid and Crown Liquid Chlorine . If you can find bleach without the extra additives, then that would be OK to use.
