H.E. Bleach

By Dr. Laundry November 11, 2011

Q: is it ok to use the high efficiency bleach for H.E. machines in a standard washing machine? I purchased the wrong bleach and want to know if I can use it in my regular machine?

A: Good news, you can definitely use HE bleach in a standard washer!  There are also other ways to use the bleach that you may want to consider, such as cleaning a toilet.  For that, pour 1 cup of the HE bleach into the bowl of the toilet.  Scrub with toilet brush and let stand 10 minutes before flushing.
