Question

How do I get the Clorox® Bleach smell out of my blouse which is made of rayon?

Answer

To remove a lingering bleach smell from a garment, try a pre-soak with Clorox 2® For Colors 3-in-1 Liquid.  Just fill the cap all the way up and add it to 1 quart of water.  Fully submerge the shirt for at least 5 minutes and no more than 1 hour.  This will allow the hydrogen peroxide in Clorox 2® For Colors 3-in-1 Liquid to react with any residual regular bleach on the shirt.  Then thoroughly rinse the shirt and allow it to air dry.
