Destainer & Deodorizer Oxygen Bleach
People have been using chlorine bleach in their laundries since the end of the 18th century. While these products work very well in whitening clothes chlorine bleaches do have a negative effect upon the environment because of their chemistry. Care must be taken in using chlorine bleach as it is toxic to humans, animals, and plants.* Also, we all have experienced destroying a colored article of clothing because chlorine bleach was accidentally spilled on it.
OXY-BOOST is a safe and effective alternative to chlorine based products and it can be used in many applications in and around the home. It is based on sodium percarbonate which uses oxygen for destaining and deodorizing. OXY-BOOST is safe to use at all temperatures, on most washable fabrics, and all colors, in hard or soft water, and is compatible with other household cleaners. Also, it produces no harmful by-products which negatively affect the environment. Unlike chlorine bleach, which can merely cover up a stain, Oxy-Boost attacks and breaks down organic stains to totally remove them from the garment.
"Just wanted you to know I'm reordering Oxy-Boost for the third time...can't be without it! I've used it to remove pet stains from carpets, difficult stains from clothing and tablecloths, and to clean my deck. Recently, when I was out of bleach and really needed to do a load of whites, I added Oxy-Boost and soaked the load for an hour. To my surprise, everything was cleaner and whiter than it had ever been with bleach...not to mention how much gentler Oxy-Boost is compared to bleach..."
