Purigen question

I just cleaned my purigen with 50% bleach, and 50%water. I let it soal for 24 hours. I rinsed it the bags, but thought to myself, I better ask the experts before i place it back in my filter. Can someone give me the correct instructions to clean purigen bags?

Instructions are on the site (at the bottom)

But to answer your question you need to dechlorinate using Prime™or Safe™to remove any chlorine (from the bleach). Once it's soaked over night in a dechlorinator rinse again and it's safe to use.

I keep extra bags on hand and use them when it's time to regenerate the used ones.

If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P
