Question

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-Bleach₂ with CLOROMAX®?

Answer

The short answer to your inquiry is YES. You can use the Clorox® Germicidal Bleach1 for laundry in the same way and amount as you would with Clorox® Regular-Bleach₂ with CLOROMAX®. This bleach version is aimed at household uses, thus the emphasis on the various surfaces.
