I recently purchased an HE machine and was wondering if I could use a little bleach in the dispenser for my dark clothes. There was some odor on a few of my darks that I needed to get out, and I was looking for some advice on how to get it out. If not bleach, then what do you recommend?
This is a great question that actually touches on several issues, so let me review them before I answer your question.
Now to answer your question: to get rid of the off-odor on your dark clothes, just re-wash the items following a bleach clean out cycle, and that should take care of it. And for extra cleaning and brightening of your dark clothes, add Clorox2® Stain Remover and Color Booster along with your regular detergent. Good luck with your new washer, and let me know if you have any more questions.
