Chlorine vs. Non-Chlorine Bleach

Q. What is the difference between non-chlorine and chlorine bleach?

A. This chlorine and non-chlorine terminology is very old, and I feel, misleading. It is an attempt to classify product actives and is then intended for product usage.

Our Clorox2® Stain Fighter and Color Booster has hydrogen peroxide as it's active ingredient and is in the class of oxygen, color-safe or non-chlorine bleach. Compare this to our Clorox® Regular-Bleach which uses sodium hypochlorite as its active ingredient and is in the class of chlorine bleach. It is wrong to call Clorox® Regular-Bleach chlorine bleach because it has entirely different chemistry. It is derived from table salt, sodium chloride, and after manufacturing it is converted to sodium hypochlorite, there is no free chlorine in any bottle of liquid bleach.

Finally, non-chlorine bleach products are to be used for colors, since it is a much weaker bleach unlike chlorine bleach products which are intended for whites.
