Hypochlorite killing of community-associated methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus.

In vitro hypochlorite (bleach) killing of community-associated methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates was assessed to determine optimal concentration and duration. For all isolates maximal killing, >3-log decrease in colony forming units (CFU), was found after 5 minutes in 2.5 muL/mL bleach. Pediatr Infect Dis J. 2008 Aug 27; [Epub ahead of print].
