Asda Smart Price Thin Bleach dilution help

I'm looking to make a no rinse solution using thin bleach and vinegar.

I've had a read around but am stumped as to how much bleach and vinegar I need.

Bottle states available chlorine as 0.80g/100g.

Contains amongst other ingredients Sodium Hypochlorite.

Thanks
