Nobody is blonde so it can't have to do with hair being bleached

I think what Kuroda Taishi said is the reason. It is in reference to Ichigo and his "bleached" hair color.

*laughes* Ah, this question again.

Well before I dwell on explaining why Bleach is called "Bleach," I need to explain that the Japanese generally like using puns, and using them in manga is no exception. So if you hear the name of an anime/manga title or a character from an anime/manga and wonder why that name was given, there's an 80% chance a play on words was applied to it. Take Ichigo's name for example. Ichigo technically means Strawberry and both of his sisters are named after citrus fruits as well. It's also a pun to represent his age since Ichi = one and go = five. Thus he's 15 years old.

Anyway, to answer your question on why the show is called Bleach, well the title itself is based on a pun if you think about. Some users in this thread already say that it's because of Ichigo's hair being Bleached and that would be one way of putting it. However more than anything else, it's called "Bleach" because it's about the concept of how Soul Reapers/Shinigami are obligated to "cleanse" souls or purify them, whether those souls have turned into hollows or in the procress of becoming one.

3 reasons.
1. I think it'll be something at the very end. Like just a mention of the word. Maybe Ichigo'll die his hair.
2. He wanted a cool title.
3. He wanted to give us something to talk about.
