Default bleach solution to kill parvo?

Score I found a almost brand new xpen at the thrift shop for $4.00 but I want to make absolutely sure it is safe for my new puppy. So I want to wash it down with a bleach solution. I understand there is a certain mixture necessary to kill parvo. Does anyone happen to know what that is? Or should I just soak in straight bleach?

I've heard different things, I read that a 1:30 solution will do it, it said that the solution needs to soak for a while (at least 10 minutes) before you rinse it.

I found this too:
"Is there a way to kill the virus in the environment?
The stability of the CPV in the environment makes it important to properly disinfect contaminated areas."

"A solution of 1/2 cup of chlorine bleach in one gallon of water (133 ml in 4 liters of water) will disinfect food and water bowls and other contaminated items."

It is important that chlorine bleach be used because most disinfectants, even those claiming to be effective against viruses, will not kill the canine parvovirus." I got this from

Yeah I'm getting pretty freaked out with what I'm reading I'm thinking that if 1 and 30 is the minimum you should use if I go higher that would be better. For example instead of a half cup bleach to a gallon of water if I used a whole cup of bleach per gallon?

Standard at human hospitals is 1:10 bleach to water.

Hmmmm I think at that point bleach would become more corrosive than helpful. I would let it soak longer time rather than make it more concentrated. I'm no expert though, might want to look more into it.

Thanks! So that is 1 1/2 cup bleach per gallon if my math is right..

So basically more is better? the 1:30 is minimum?

Never thought of that. It's this xpen

Amazon.com: Pet Trex Premium Quality 24" Exercise Playpen for Dogs Eight 24" x 24" High Panels with Gate: Pet Supplies Amazon.com: Pet Trex Premium Quality 24" Exercise Playpen for Dogs Eight 24" x 24" High Panels with Gate: Pet Supplies



Looks like they used it for some sort of birds its clean but I pulled a feather out of it... Might not even have had dogs in it but I just want to be safe!

I think 1:10 would be ok. my main concern with this pen is the powder coating. Bleach strips that stuff,then it could rust. but I think the 1:10 is fine, just don't scrub it.
