Rated 3 out of 5 by from Prefer Lysol laundry Sanitizer that can be added to the washing machine. Bought this because many wants are unavailable at this time. To use as a sanitizer you have to spray the whole garment and let it sit for 3 minutes. Probably wont buy again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have a few shirts that I often wear to do my yard work and I live in Florida, so I am always drenched in sweat by the time I am done. Needless to say, those yard work shirts never truly smell clean, even after a good washing. I also have a few t-shirts that always seem to have that "wet towel' smell that also never seems to go away no matter how many times I wash them. I even tried something I found online which said to soak the clothes in water with baking soda which also didn't work. I finally stumbled across this Clorox Fabric Sanitizer one day while shopping at Home Depot and I bought some to give it a try. I was really happy to find out that it works! All you do is spray down your clothes and let it sit for about two minutes, the directions say to not let the clothes dry. Then you toss them in the wash with your other laundry and wash as usual. After doing this, those t-shirts that I used for outdoor work no longer had that gym clothes smell. I was glad to see this available on Amazon because I haven't been able to find it anyplace else besides Home Depot where I live. Highly recommended!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I used this fabric sanitizer spray almost daily. I have a problem with germs and so if anyone comes over Ill spray this over my cloth murals and couch to make sure that there isnt anything unwanted on the fabric.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clothes, pet beds and blankets..oh my The Clorox Fabric Sanitizer is awesome. I have used it on our clothes, pet beds and blankets . As temps are changing from winter to spring, clothes are coming out for the season and this is helpful to refresh the clothes after being stowed away for a few months. After I vacuum the pet beds, I like to spritz them just to give them an additional sanitizing boost before putting them in the washer. Once I can find it again in the store I will be getting more for the household.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing & No perfume cover ups! I have multiples. Times get very messy; whether food or soiled pants, this stuff is amazing! They all have extremely sensitive skin, but no problems with this product.. I put on area about 3-4 mins before throwing in washer with detergent & works wonders! Ive been using this for over 6 months and I'm saddened to say it has been getting harder & harder for me to find on the shelves! However when I do find it again I will stock up as I generally use about 2-3 bottles a month! (Our home has lots of laundry. Always).. If you've been looking for something, this is it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product ever! This Clorox Fabric sanitizer is what my laundry has been missing! I have a very active family that loves Soccer. And the cloths after words stinks. This helps take the odors away and does not just mask them. Works with my workout cloths as well. My yoga pants and shorts don’t have that workout sweat smell any more either. I love this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this; especially with little ones! I’ve used this ever since I found it existed. Being your typical, somewhat neurotic first time (single) Mom, I was very excited when I found this earlier this year (Jan 2020). It’s perfect to pretreat children’s clothes with, blankets, bedding, even favorite stuffed animals. I pretreat all of my “work” clothes with it as well. Have just been able to find it again. Abd by “find it again- I found one last, remaining bottle at Target, a few weeks ago. Anyhow, highly recommend!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not like spray on I liked the other version where I could add the measured amount to the entire load at once. Rather than having to spray every garment or whatever... How about offering both versions! I used this for washing pillows. The new look is, awful for this application! I cannot just stand there all day hand spraying pillows or whatever individually snd making sure the product. Is covered. I DO NOT LIKE IT!!!
