Hypochlorous Acid? Power of Bleach, Safety of water

Does anyone have experience using hypochlorous acid for quarantine/sanitizing plants from pests, particularly scale etc?

I have a device which we use for generating our own HOCl at home for cleaning purposes, and it occurred to me it could be useful for vivariums/plants.

Or anyone see scientific studies that confirm one way or the other whether we could safely rely on HOCl for clearing plants for our vivariums?

I know folks mostly rely on dilute bleach, but will hypochlorous acid also work without the potential toxicities since it's the active ingredient in bleach?
