How bleach pregnancy test works?

Well, you may never think your kitchen and bathroom cleaning Beach powder, helps you to detect your pregnancy. But yes, it’s true in most of the cases. Bleach pregnancy test proves right for many women all over the world.

Just take some bleach powder from your shelf and add your early morning urine to it. If you observe any reaction like bubbles, fizz or forth, then it indicates a positive result, means you are pregnant. The highly reactive nature of bleaching powder causes all the reactions.
