    All brands of bleach are regular or concentrated. Diluted bleach means that you dilute (mix) the bleach with water. I believe 1/4 cup of bleach to a gallon of water is pretty effective, although stronger mixes are sometimes recommended. Be sure to wear latex gloves and work in a well ventilated area. Breathing bleach fumes or getting it in your eyes can be dangerous.

    You dilute bleach yourself by mixing it with water [​IMG] 1 part bleach to 10 parts water is a typical cleaning strength. "Part" can be any size container -- a tablespoon if you only need a tiny amount, a cup or a gallon if you need a lot. So like you might mix 1 c bleach with 10 c water to produce 11 c of diluted bleach solution.
