Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great My father had a stroke and has been bedridden for 3 years. I used all Clorox Products to keep him and the house fresh and clean. I wish I could get the products, but since COVID, I can't find anything. I use what I can find, but Clorox is my go-to for the last 30 years. Nothing can beat their products. Please keep making them- I hope I can get some soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Glad to add to my wash I am so glad I came across this in my local store. I feel good knowing it is killing the bacteria on my clothes and eliminating ordors. I feel more confident with my color clothes coming out the washer after using this just like I would if I had used regular bleach. Especially with everything going on right now this helps me to feel at ease about sanitizing my clothes. Thanks for making this product!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Confused I bought this because Lysol Laundry Sanitizer is out everywhere. Found this for delivery through Target! I’m confused though because the 3 80oz bottles say Clorox Laundry Sanitizer but the 1 42oz bottle says Clorox odor remover. I like it but I really would appreciate answered concerning its sanitizing/disinfecting properties. Why does the smaller bottle not say the same thing but they were bought as the same only 3 stars until I know if it’s sanitizing like what I’d like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best My brother recommended Clorox laundry sanitizer to me. I finally found it and he was right. It gives the wash a fresh smell, the fabric feel soft and it's sanitized. What could be better than that. BUT I can't find this product in any of the local grocery stores or online so I am very disappointed in the company that they aren't supplying the stores with this great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE This Product - However.... Searching for an alternate laundry sanitizer, I ordered this, Clorox Laundry Sanitizer, & LOVE IT.. HOWEVER, it's IMPOSSIBLE to find now, 2 months later. Not in stock, not available for shipping, not available for online ordering. HOW are we, the general public, supposed to purchase it? It'd be GREAT if it were actually available... Same problem with the Fabric Sanitizer Spray. Not even Costco carries it. I'd buy only this product vs the competitor, IF I could. Either it needs to be stocked in stores or available online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Scent I gave it 5 stars, as I've only used the fabric sanitizer spray, and love the scent. I can not find the detergent! My step-son has a 100lb European Doberman, and stinks up the blankets that we have on the couches! I'd like to know where and when it is available.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for frontline workers I have to separate my scrubs from everything else I wash, especially since Covid. My scrubs would feel brand new and I would feel good putting them on. Unfortunately with all of the hoarding it’s almost impossible to find a bottle anywhere. I have been lost without it ={

Rated 1 out of 5 by from In-Wash Laundry Sanitizer Review NOT the Spray! This product is sold as alternative to Lysol Laundry Sanitizer but does not come close to meeting the same quality as Lysol. Bought the small size bottle (42oz) to try, and to my surprise this bottle is only enough for 3 loads of laundry in standard washers (14.9 oz per load). Lysol only require 2 capfuls per wash! Lysol is definitely a better buy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I expected During times of COVID-19 anything that says “sanitizer” flies off the shelves. Especially when it is branded by Clorox. I’ll have to admit, I was one of those anxious people. I’ve been using Lysol Laundry Sanitizer since 2017 and loved the product. I live in a small town, so since COVID-19, most sanitizer products, especially Lysol and Clorox brands, are hard to come by. I saw the Clorox Fabric Sanitizer and immediately thought of all the other Clorox products I love for their disinfectant qualities. I assumed this product would be no different, since I never seen this prior to COVID-19 outbreak. I purchased a bottle and did some more reading of the labels and online and it’s not what I assumed it to be. It’s a sanitizer in the sense that it kills odor causing bacteria. Not in the sense of what “sanitizer” has come to mean post COVID-19 outbreak. My mistake, I should have paid closer attention to the bottle and read it thoroughly. So I take responsibility for that. I returned the product and was able to get my hands on Lysol laundry sanitizer which does kill cold and flu viruses. I hope in the future the Clorox Fabric Sanitizer, and the other Clorox laundry products, are redone to also kill these viruses.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Trouble with the instructions I bought 3 bottles of this and they all say to use 3.3 oz in a HE machine but 14.9 oz in a standard machine. Can this be right?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is good stuff! Gets rid of those difficult smells from animals, sweating, or just that must smell from unworn clothes.
