Using Germicidal Bleach for Laundry

By Dr. Laundry April 23, 2009

Q. I bought a large container of Clorox® Plus® Bleach at Home Depot. It has Germicidal Bleach on the front label. The only direction for use is for surface cleaning, etc. Can I use this bleach on my clothes like Clorox Regular Bleach?

A. The short answer to your inquiry is YES. You can use the Clorox Clorox® Germicidal Bleach for laundry in the same way and amount as you would with Clorox® Regular-Bleach1. This bleach version is aimed at household uses, thus the emphasis on the various surfaces.
