I was concerned about that too. I have made paper for the last twenty some
years. My kids really GET INTO the pulp. The thought of them handling or
breathing bleach residue is frightening to me. I just blended enough to last
a few days and put oil of clove in it if it started getting a bit smelly. I
never put chemicals in it.
