Please read the instruction and warning labels on any products used. When using any chemicals wear waterproof gloves, preferably something like these:

The liquid chlorine solution will also kill weeds and grass and stop new ones germinating for a while. Of course it may also kill off other plants one doesn’t want killed like flowers, so take care with where the liquid goes. It will also bleach your clothes so wear old ones and rubber boots (wellies). I would recommend keeping pets off the treated ground for a few days.
This solution is what swimming pool owners use to give a big increase in chlorine content of a swimming pool, in what they call shock treatment. The level of chlorine released by the solution goes down over time and eventually drops to zero and it becomes harmless. People swim in it after all!

Sweep in some polymeric sand into the joints and wet the area down. When it dries, the sand Wil be hard as cement and will stop weeds from re-growing.

Konrad Dorfling says:

I have been looking for common products that contains sodium hypochlorite and realized that household bleach is about 3% sodium hypochlorite. Not that it will be cost effective but in a pinch using straight bleach is close in ratio to your mix. Hopefully this comes in handy for someone.
