The article presents a clarification of the article "The Parcell's Oxygen Soak," by Dorcas Gerace in the November/December 2005 issue. The term oxgenator, as used in the article has a quite different meaning and is not responsible in soaking organic materials to bleach solution. The process does not provide oxygen at all, though it was described in the article. It suggests that bleach should be avoided if possible and refrain from using bleach if sanitation is not a problem.
