When Benefits Become Drawbacks

The only problem with the new Ultimate Care Bleach made by Clorox that looks and smells almost exactly like detergent and can be poured directly onto your clothes.... is that it looks and smells almost exactly like detergent, can easily be mistaken for it, and be poured directly onto your colored clothes.

Ooops. Are stonewashed jeans back in style yet?

Yikes! But stonewashed jeans are still in style. I should know, I'm a teen.

Oh yeah, I forgot. Go ahead and rip those jeans. It would still be fashionable.

Hmmm....I didn't know you couldn't pour bleach directly onto your clothes. I do it all the time! That's how our girls' white play clothes still look brand new. Am I the only one???

Hi, I have a question about bleach...
I am not a big bleach user but really should be with all my little children, 1/2 that are boys! My question is do I have to use bleach on the white clothes right when they are dirty? Or will the bleach still work to get out stains that have been there for a while...?

You aren't supposed to pour traditional bleach directly on your clothes. Truth be told, I always did...and felt bad about it even though I never saw any ill effects from doing so. That's why I bought this stuff!

Anon, I'm no laundry expert, but a good oxy or shout stain remover spray is a very handy thing. You can spray stains with this before you launder them with bleach.

I just have to share here, since laundry has become the predominant task in my life these days and I have found (cue Hallelujah chorus)the perfect stain removers. 1)Clorox Bleach pen, for stains on ANY white based article of clothing, rgardless of color designs etc - I don't know how this works but it magically removes the stain but does NOT bleed into the colored portion, nor does it bleed onto any other article of clothing in the wash. I have yet to find a stain that won't come out, even old-already-been-through-the dryer ones. 2)Fantastic Oxy Spray for basic stains on anything, it almost always does the job and what it doesn't the bleach pen does. I would cry if they stopped selling either of these products.
