  1. In my science class I did a experiment it was about to compare the original Clorox to the cheap Clorox first we do 2 teams of people team A and team B, then we ask to team A to wash they cloth with the original Clorox and to the team B wash with the cheap Clorox. Later we ask to the people who wash with the original Clorox how thy clothe looks and they say that was really clean, and then we ask to team B who were wash with the cheap Clorox and they say that they cloth were diary and yellow finally we discover that the original Clorox was better to wash if they wanted to have a clean cloth
