Why Bleach Doesn’t Work

Most citations for disinfection of C. diff in the environment states that bleach should be used or compares against bleach.

The fact is that there are other chemicals that also work as sporicidals for C. diff as listed on the EPA K list. Other agents do work so why does bleach continue to be the mainstay?
