Clorox2® in Bleach Dispenser

By Dr. Laundry January 9, 2013

Can I put Clorox2® in my LG washing machine bleach dispenser?

The bleach dispenser on your clothes washer should only be used for regular household bleach (i.e. Clorox® Regular-Bleach). That’s because the clothes washer will delay flushing the compartment into the washer until later in the cycle. For best results, Clorox2® should be added along with the detergent, and the dispenser compartment should be large enough to hold both products. Also, you should use the same form of detergent as you do Clorox2®, powder + powder or liquid + liquid. For example, you don’t want to add a powdered additive with a liquid detergent in the same compartment.
