Sodium hypochlorite-based bleach products (‘chlorine bleach’) can be very effective at removing tough stains from white fabrics.
Chorine bleach will whiten laundry items that have yellowed.
This icon was officially endorsed by the United Nations in mid 2019 and included in the GHS Sub-committee guidelines (Globally Harmonized System of classification and labelling of chemicals).
Bleach additives can be added into the washing machine. Oxygen-based bleach additives are normally added to the main wash and chlorine-based bleaches can be added in before the final rinse cycle.
If you are using a chlorine-based bleach additive in your laundry, do not use fabric softener.
Do not add bleach directly into the machine drum as it may damage your clothes.
Always read the care label on your garment before using bleach.
Always read the product label and follow the instructions to achieve best results. For coloured garments, use a bleach product that is not chlorine based.
