I’m using Clorox® Regular-Bleach₂ with CLOROMAX® containing sodium hypochlorite and a detergent for whites containing hydrogen peroxide. I have heard that hydrogen peroxide and sodium hypochlorite react with each other, and that it’s best to choose one and not to use both together. So what do you recommend about the washing process? If your suggestion is that I use a detergent not containing sodium hypochlorite, will using the detergent for colorful fabrics be enough to remove the soils?
I’m glad to hear you are now using the Clorox® Regular-Bleach₂ with CLOROMAX® to whiten and disinfect the laundry. You are correct that the Clorox® Regular-Bleach₂ with CLOROMAX® and hydrogen peroxide react in the wash solution. The sodium hypochlorite is the stronger oxidant, so it creates oxygen and water from the peroxide. You did not specify, but I assume it is a powdered detergent (the liquid versions can not contain hydrogen peroxide, as it would react with the enzymes and cut cleaning performance even further).
So, my preferred laundry process for you would be:
