I'm just curious because me and my parents made a stop at CVS on the way home because we needed milk. So, my mom went in and I was waiting in the car with my dad. I was just looking out the window and I saw this guy come out of CVS with six gallons of bleach and I thought to myself "who needs that much bleach?" Then my mom came out and jokingly said "I think I was in line behind a serial killer because he bought six gallons of bleach". Obviously, none of us believe that. However, you can't really use bleach for much other then laundry and cleaning, even than you don't need that much. So, I'm curious what do you think someone would purchase that much bleach for?

in olden days, it was used both to purify ground water wells, also for septic cisterns & hurricane preparation (drinking water purify)
other odd uses for such a quantity
pool supplies failed to deliver chlorine & swimming party imminent
ground nesting yellowjacket/hornet nest taking over the grounds
mold/mildew corrections, large scale
professional kitchen runs out of commercial cleaning/sanitizing products
hotel out of laundry & toilet cleaning supplies
keeps cut flowers & pumpkins lasting longer & fresher
... and the oddest one: Halloween shirts created https://www.pinterest.com/pin/10766486578709049/1

The guy probably has a meth lab.
Bleach is one of the few readily available chemicals that actually dreaks down meth.
Some particularly unscrupuluous meth cooks might even try to *use* bleach in the meth manufacturing process, too... but, most likely, they're trying to obliterate evidence before the feds bust their doors down.1
