Bleach use in crafting bandages

It seems to me that bleach should be on the list of acceptable disinfectants for crafting bandages.

    I don't think honey and lemon are good enough disinfectants, I know honey on a normal cut is a good thing so is lemon juice, but they are more preemptive not meant to help clear up a infection of the fungus or whatever makes the zombies tick, and they and not strong enough to clean a real bandage.

    question why can't we just boil rags to get bandages? or wash rags with strong soapy water(gives that soap item a use)?

    The point is to clean them so they are sanitary. So whatever you use needs to not be able to culture bacteria. as lemon juice and honey left in the open will spoil they are not good choices to clean bandages.

    But I am all for the use of bleach and water as a means to clean bandages.

    Ah ok :) I was assuming the disinfectant in the recipe was just applied to a rag, becoming a DIY medicated bandage. It never occurred to me the player was actually sterilizing the rags.

    Correction, honey does not go bad if left in the open. It's a really terrible growth medium. Can you point to anything indicating that bleaching bandages is a good idea? I'd be concerned that bleach left on the bandage would be harmful to the wound.

    Bleaching bandages to sterilize them prior to use (with time to dry out and such) is good; putting bleach on them immediately prior to use as an antiseptic is very, very bad.

    Well, IRL you would use a bleach water mixture. Not pure bleach. You would soak the bandages in a fairly weak bleach solution. Maybe a few teaspoons per gallon and then let them dry well, then seal them up in a bag of you had it.

    So, probably use a unit of clean water and a unit of bleach plus the rags? That would be too strong IRL but maybe a good simulated mixture. Maybe more than one unit of water. Water wouldn't have to be clean particularly either.

    In game terms, a unit of bleach would suffice.

    In that case why not lemons and honey also?

    Also, for a real wilderness survival style bandage... A way to turn pine boroughs into pine oil, which is a natural disinfectant? -->http://www.ehow.com/how_5860292_extract-essential-pine-tree-oil.html

    I didn't know that lemons and honey were also disinfectants. I thought about adding ammonia to the list of strong chemicals that would probably sterilize the soon to be bandages.
