Laundry Line: To Bleach or Not to Bleach
Have you made the switch to oxygen-bleach products for your laundry yet? You may think conventional chlorine bleach is whitening, but if the water is not hot enough, the bleach is only weakening fibers. Old-fashioned bleach requires substantial heat to activate and brighten. The new oxy products work even in cold water and get your whites brighter without leaving chlorine smell and holes behind. Save bleach for disinfecting around the house, and switch to a more earth-friendly way to brighten all your laundry.
