Household bleach works best. As a former Army medic, I was responsible for making sure that water facilities were clean. Canteens, lister bags, and water buffalo trailers needed to be properly clean, and bleach does the job. A small bottle of bleach carried in your rucksack can also be used to treat water from streams and rivers and make it safe to drink, just add a couple or three drops to a canteen of water, let it sit for awhile, and it is ready to drink.
