Stains. Stains. How many clothes have been ruined by this simple matter of a drop of ketchup or orange juice? And those of us with kids? Let’s just say if my son wears a brand new shirt out, in a matter of an hour it isn’t that brand new anymore. I’m still learning how to clean everything properly and what products work best for each type of a stain. DH suggested to get chlorine bleach to clean his white shirts. While chlorine bleach does a great job of whitening clothes it’s as un-eco-friendly as it gets. It’s harmful to humans, animals and the environment. I’ve once breathed in the fumes from bleach mixed with hot water and almost passed out! And I also absolutely hates how clothes stink of it afterwards.
Of course, there are way now more eco-friendly options even when it comes to household bleach. Tropical Traditions comes to the rescue with their introduction of Non-Chlorine Oxygen Bleach. Tropical Traditions Bleach is based on sodium percarbonate which uses oxygen for destaining and deodorizing. It is safe in all water temperatures, all water types and on all fabrics and colors. It does not produce harmful fumes which affect humans and it doesn’t affect the environment. Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach works by attacking and breaking down organic stains to completely remove them off your clothes.
Same day this bleach came in, my little guy was wearing a new white shirt and he just had have an orange. Kids are not very good at eating without making a mess and so the shirt got covered with huge orange stains. I followed instructions and soaked the shirt in Oxygen Bleach overnight. When it was done soaking and going through the wash, I noticed that unfortunately half the orange stains were still there. I also soaked a couple of other shirts which were not stained as bad. Those stains were completely gone. If it doesn’t work for you as well, I think I’d suggest just using more of the bleach and soaking it longer, as opposed to turning to a chemical bleach.
My next test was a carpet which is badly stained with tomatoes, sun screen lotion, juice and whatever else. I’ve been meaning to try to clean it with something, but the opportunity just wasn’t coming up (read – laziness). I followed the instructions and made a liquid mix in a bottled. You are supposed to soak the stain for a bit and then rub it out with a scrub or a similar gadget. I didn’t even wait for it to soak and scrubbed with kitchen cloths. All the colorful stains were gone in minutes! I was very impressed with it. The sun screen stains did no come off unfortunately, I’m thinking they are now permanent. When I was done with the liquid, I dumped the rest into the toilet bowl and cleaned that as well. Toilet turned out sparkling white!
Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach isn’t just for your clothes. It can be used in the kitchen drains, toilets, garbage cans, to remove stains off carpets and in many many other ways. All you have to do is mix it with water to make a liquid or a paste. Check out cleaning instructions, turn up the music and clean away :)
