It is not sorted in alphabetical order instead of chronologically in order to make posts easier to find, I will also try to keep the titles straightforward for the same reason. When I started writing the these blogs, while I had researched the articles I wrote, the hope was that it would improve the websites visibility and inform some people along the way.

Hypoclorous Acid and the important role PH plays in it

It was brought to my attention the concept of using HOCl with a humidifier. In theory, it seemed like a great idea. So I started doing some digging on the issue.
