Rated 5 out of 5 by from First time user I bought this yesterday, this morning I decided to use it on a new shirt I just purchased. I brought a Ralph Lauren Polo shirt for my husband. I inadvertently grabbed some cloths to wash and I grabbed his new shirt. Tags was still on the shirt. It came out on my cannery yellow shirt. Today I pre-treated, washed the shirt using the Clorox 2 bleach. It turned out without any trace of the tag. This is an excellent replacement for Smart Bleach. This is awesome! I have pictures to prove it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saves our money I have been buying this for months now because every other stain remover doesn't work as well. It has saved a number of my kids new school clothes and a lot of my husband work clothes. Between four kids and my husband a farmer it has gotten out all types of stains that other wise would have ruined them so thank you!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved My Daughters Brand New Cheerleading Socks My daughter is a senior in high school and continues to find new ways to create the worst stains. I had just gotten her a few new pairs of the white knee socks with yellow stripes along the top that is part of her cheerleading uniform for christmas, and I specifically told her to PLEASE not wear them without shoes to keep them clean. Well.. someone forgot to pack their shoes for practice and instead of practicing in her sandals, she practiced on the dirty gym floor in her brand new socks! The bottoms looked like she was kicking coal. I thought for sure they were ruined. Thankfully Clorox 2 did the trick as always and got those awful stains out and saved the yellow stripes!! From now on I’ll be making sure those sneakers are in her bag!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle worker!!! While on a Target run I googled what laundry product would remove difficult blood stains and it recommended this product and I must say by far the best stain remover. I’ve tried other methods and your typical stain remover sprays but this product actually removed the blood stains and left no residue. Can’t wait to see what other stains this product will work through! I highly recommend this product.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from towel had pink areas after washing with this I have used this product for years with good results. I recently bought some new towels(tan). When I washed them -some areas were turned a pink color. What happened, as they weren't cheap ones?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn’t work:( I had several items with pen ink. Applied Clorox2 liquid directly to all spots, let sit for about 20 minutes before throwing on the washer. Also, put a full capful in the load in addition to detergent. Didn’t even lighten the spots. Maybe I bought a bad batch. Disappointed!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Greater Went thru my first and second spray bottles in San Antonio and came to Arlington and could not find this bottle. Seems you have updated the container. So happy to go online and find where I can buy more and more of this product. It really works great on stains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product My wife had some shirts that where five years old and looked pretty dingy, but didn’t want to give them up. I bought your Clorox 2 it took about six or seven washings but they look like new again. I now use it with everything. Thanks for making something that lives up to what you say. Form bright and clean in Texas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lipstick set in stain on Favorite Jeans I bought this product at a discount store, thinking I would try it on a pair of jeans that had lipstick stains on them. I left a lipstick in a pocket in the dryer. It got all over a lot of items, but these jeans were a favorite pair. I tried other stain removers and two stain removers together. Letting them pre soak and nothing worked. I got this product, pre soaked as suggested and washed them. I was astounded when I took them out of the wash and the stains were gone! I would recommend this to anyone with a set in stain.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed Clorox2 & Color Booster After reading reviews, made the purchase and gave it a try on some dark towels. One towel is ruined with a large spot where the color was removed, it is now pink. Used as directed, so much for color brightening.. Was hoping to love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clorox 2 and Curry Yo, I was wearing a $95 shirt at a dinner featuring curry (not a good combination, for future reference) and spilled a bunch on myself. NOTHING stains like the turmeric and other spices/colors in curry. I got home and tried OxyClean Max -- NOTHING. Tried Clorox 2 pre-treatment -- MAGIC!!! This stuff WORKS!! Zero stain!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Huge Disappointment I have used and adored the "Free & Clear" version for years - until my last purchase, an obvious "formula change" After the very 1st use of this I broke out in hives after using this in version. Nothing else has changed in my other detergents and I can no longer use this and am telling all my social network that you have ruined a wonderful product - DON'T BUY THIS, IT IS NOW A VERY DIFFERENT PRODUCT!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from My favorite shirt destroyed I’m a regular user of Clorox 2 , after successfully testing it on an inconspicuous area of a Polo shirt (97%cotton/3% elastane) the pretreated area of a stain left a white ring at the outer edge of the treated area. This WAS my favorite shirt and virtually new, now an expensive loss-$60☹️

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very disappointed! I'm not sure if the formula changed along with the bottle but I presoaked my daughters stained sweatshirt - like I've done several times - and the color was taken out of the sweatshirt! Now there are two permanent stains. I thought the whole purpose of this product was NOT to take out the colors with the stain!!! This has never happened before with this product! I am now searching for another sweatshirt to replace this one. Not sure if I can trust this product anymore!!! :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New clorox2 free liquid I’ve used Clorox 2 Free for years with no problem but they recently changed the formula apparently and new bottle, I have no idea why but the new Clorox 2 makes me itch all over and clothes feel crunchy and stiff it’s terrible.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stains gone Actually I purchased this at a thrift store. Bottle was unopened so I thought I would give it a try. Have a sweatshirt that I really love but it was full of stains. Thought about throwing it until I found this bargain at the thrift store. Soaked the sweatshirt in Clorox using the hottest water possible. Let it sit overnight. Next morning washed it as usual dried it and guess what I have my favorite sweatshirt back. Going to look in the closet for more stains!,,,, thank you clorox

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Works! Christmas Eve 2017. I had an emergency stain removal problem wine was spilled on a 30-year-old Christmas white cotton table runner. I checked online for recommendations to remove red wine stain...I opened the Clorox site and saw the video for removing red wine from a colored fabric. This runner has red and green embroidered designs on it so using regular bleach was out. We raced down to the local supermarket before it closed and bought the Clorox 2 stain remover. I wet the fabric and put on a lot of product. An hour later...the stain was completely gone! Yea! It does work. Thank Goodness.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not do what it says This product does not remove faded stain as it states, I soaked and washed the faded stain items three times, I saw no results my items still have the same red stains.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from White work shirts My Husband works for Braums and has to have his shirts white and stain free every day..and Clorox bleach is the only true bleach the other products are like paying for bottled water they don't clean or smell like it has any bleach in them at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why has the Smart Seek Bleach been removed from stores? Where is the Smart Seek bleach?? The Smart Seek bleach has been removed from the store shelves, and this useless product is the apparent replacement. This product does NOT deodorize towels well at all. Actually, I haven't noticed a single thing this thick pouring liquid does well-- including, color boosting. Waste of money.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed I used this product in my washing machine on my granddaughters summer swim pullover which is new, purple & white polkadots. Also had a bright colored yellow & orange towel included. These items now all have blue streakes and spots all over them. I have washed a couple of times with no luck removing ??? Any suggestions?? Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING!!! Finally a product that lives up to its claims! I have 2 Ohio State Buckeyes hoodies that had collected several stains over the years. I bought new ones but the originals had been through several seasons and I couldn't just toss them out. The stains were most likely pizza & cheeseburger grease, and probably from cooking other man-cave style foods. I tried several other well known brands of stain remover. I tried pretreating with detergents, stain sticks, etc.... nothing worked. I was losing hope.Yesterday I was shopping and out of habit I walked through the laundry aisle and saw this product. We use other Clorox brands in our house so I figured it couldn't hurt to try it. I followed the instructions and waited for the results. I pulled them out of the dryer 20 minutes ago. WOW! SUCCESS! Every old, dryer set stain is gone! I am beyond happy. My old hoodies will be ready for game day again and looking like new! Thank you Clorox!
