Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sanitizer I had a comforter that I'd spilled something on and washed. It came out with a funky smell and i was ready to throw it away, until I tried this Clorox fabric sanitizer. Stain is gone and my comforter smells 1000 times better. Also used it on my towels. This will definitely be a staple in my house!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love This! I love this stuff. My daughter plays a lot of sports and even after washing, the armpit area would still not be fresh. I started using this and when I spray it on, the areas that are sweat soaked turn white and you can actually see the product working! The clothes smell so fresh after a wash and a sanitize.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome especially if you have kids. Until now I have never heard about fabric sanitizer. I used this on some clothes that had been stored all winter and seemed like no matter how much I washed them they had a faint smell. Once I used this on them and washed them it really worked.

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 Gets rid of lingering smell and germs We just started using this product and don't regret it one bit. We have 3 dogs and kids that can cause a mess, most recently on a chair of ours. We were able to use this spray to really clean this up. The cushion cover looks like new, can't believe it. Additionally, we use it for my spouse who is in Healthcare. We use this as prewash. The Clorox brand makes me feel confident it rids us of any germs, etc.

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 5 out of 5 by from Perfect and easy! This product is perfect for the way our lives have changed. Using this product gives me peace of mind that my clothes are completely sanitized when they're in the wash. With Clorox Fabric Sanitizer, I know that not only will my clothes not smell horrible but they're germ free, too!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Wonders If your looking for a product to take care of those stinky sports clothes this is your product. With my 11 year old playing basketball and playing outside all the time his clothes get smelly and dirty but nothing helps until we got this. A couple of sprays 5 minutes before washing and it takes away the stink! But it also helps with swear stains as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get's the dirt out ! This spray is really great for stains that need the extra boost of some sanitizer. I wear my socks around the house all the time and they can get pretty dirty. We have a dog and two cats, they lay wherever they want. Most of the time its pillows. I use the Clorox sanitizer spray on my socks to get them squeaky clean and most of the time pillows or blankets where my dog was laying on. The spray smells really good and it will not act like bleach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! Product has a great light smell. I have to admit I’m am always dropping food on my shirt while eating. If it’s tacos or burgers, I smell like that hours after I eat if I don’t change my shirt not to mention the stain that is left behind. This product helps to remove the stains left behind that usually never come out even after several washes and helps me not smell like a taco.

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!!!
