Milton solution (Richardson Merrell Ltd.) is a commercially available  
product containing 1% sodium hypochlorite and 16.5% sodium chloride. It 
is widely used as a 1 in 80 dilution  to sterilise babies feeding 
utensils and a 1 in 20 solution is isotonic with body fluids.  For  
wound  management applications, a 1 in 4 dilution of Milton is 
generally used. This contains 0.25% w/v available chlorine and has a pH 
of 10.5-11.2. Despite the difference in the pH of the two solutions, 
this dilution of Milton is often supplied as a Eusol equivalent.  
Because of its high pH, the diluted solution is stable for several 
months in unopened containers.
