If you honestly believe that, then you haven't been drinking the quality brews.
Yeah, but stereotypes are fun (and not always inaccurate). Tongue

@qwert: if you think the mass produced water/beer in america is bad, you should try some of the *asian* "beers"!
(HITE immediately comes to mind...)

You bet! Bud, Miller, and the horrific PBR are nothing but canned piss.

And the classic:
How is sex in a canoe like Bud?
They're both fucking close to water!

I don't know about how chlorine bleach effects the strength of nylon. But, as a home brewer, I often use a weak chlorine bleach solution to sanitize my brewing hardware. The ratio I use is about: 2 oz of bleach to 5 gallons of water and a 20 minute wet soak. Then a hot water rinse for metal or just air dry for plastic.

The food preparation industry often uses 1 tablespoon bleach to 1 gallon of water to sanitize surfaces and glassware. I think that gives 200 ppm.

I've bookmarked this answer in case I ever do some home brewing. I would of never thought to look on RC.com for this specific bit of information.
It is a good answer, but not the only answer. I am also a homebrewer, but have never used chlorine as a sanitizer.

Wow!!!!
Sorry no one caught the sarcasm in my posts.

I guess I'm the only one here who finds it comical that advise is being given about home brewing and cleaning on a rock climbing forum and the question posed was the effects on chlorine on slings/soft goods.

What a leap.

Not sure if you're saying that *I* made a leap here. But, I thought I made the reason for my beer equipment sanitizing response pretty clear: "Oh, and the whole point was I "suspect" that very weak chlorine solution wouldn't have a tremendous effect on nylon, but I really don't know. I was just pointing out what strength solution is used to sanitize, if that's what the OP is after. "

You only need a very weak chlorine solution to "sanitize". The OP was not asking about climbing gear so his question was sort of OT in a climbing forum to begin with. It's up to the OP to deem if the solution is strong enough to sanitize yet weak enough not to cause much damage in his application.

I do NOT recommend exposing climbing software to chlorine.

OP: If you usage is, as I suspect, for the food industry can you steam clean/washdown those lifting slings just like all the other equipment?
