My toddler has an off-white stuffed lambie that she loves to suck on the ears and legs. It begins to stink very bad with her saliva germs from her mouth so I have washed it and disinfected it with Clorox® Regular-Bleach₂ with CLOROMAX®. After 3 days or so, I have to bleach it again. She also has a colored bunny. My question is: Does Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster have the same disinfecting ingredient as the Clorox® Regular-Bleach₂ with CLOROMAX® for whites? I would like to disinfect this bunny too. Thanks for you help.
Kids always seem to have those favorite toys/blankets that have to go everywhere with them. The white one might benefit from a short bleach presoak (1/4 cup Clorox® Regular-Bleach₂ with CLOROMAX® in gallon of warm water for 5-10 minutes) before laundering. Then, launder in hot water using detergent and 3/4 cup Clorox® Regular-Bleach₂ with CLOROMAX®. This might extend the “life cycle.”
On the colored one, this is a question that I get a lot. Unfortunately, there currently is NOT a product for disinfecting colored clothes/items. Our Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster contains hydrogen peroxide as its active ingredient. It is a much weaker bleach than the sodium hypochlorite found in Clorox® Regular-Bleach₂ with CLOROMAX® and is not capable of meeting EPA disinfecting requirements.
As I have written previously, the best way to reduce germ counts in (colored) laundry are:
