today I was cleaning out my fiances hamster cage, we had a hamster in there before, and long story short, we had to return for what appeared to be an illness. So, needless to say, I wanted to clean it really well. I first rinsed it with water, then dumped out the water, poured in some chlorine-bleach, and added some dish soap. the part I'm interested in is the reaction it created, and the resounding lack of information on the web. The best thing I could deduce is that the sulfates are chemically separated, but given my fairly limited knowledge of chemistry, that's the best I could come up with. The interesting thing about this reaction was that when the soap was poured into the bleach, it changed from it's orange color to to a white. then when water was added, the suds went crazy. there was a lot more suds that resulted from this reaction than water and soap alone. I know this was lengthy, but I'm really interested to see what the answer is, thanks!
