All-Purpose Bleach Alternative
I’m currently at home with my parents, and my mom’s go-to laundry sanitizing product has been out of stock for about two months. This bleach alternative is a great replacement, containing no chlorine bleach yet still quite effective at removing dirt, stains, and odors. It’s safe for all colors and fabrics (except silk and wool), and can even be used to clean the rest of your home!

It’s an all-purpose product, made to whiten, brighten, preserve color, and remove stains, and is nontoxic, biodegradable, and allergen-free. Our writer says that it helps her take better care of her clothes, and be more mindful of what and how much she’s laundering.
