My molecule is sodium hypochlorite. It is made of 1 oxygen atom, 1 chlorine atom, and 1 sodium atom. It is important because it helps clean things, not just our clothes. Most disinfectant wipes have ammonia or bleach for disinfecting. The combination of sodium and chlorine, combined with oxygen can be used to clean things from pools to desks. Sodium hypochlorite is also a common chemical material, not an advanced chemical material, therefore, it is not as expensive to make as other more complex chemicals. It is cheaper because it is more common since it is made of chemicals that are easier to find and is more common than other disinfecting materials. While the other chemicals are good, they are more expensive and harder to find.
