An SR101 reader shared this Clorox Bleach stain remover for whites review. This is a laundry pretreater product that is designed to be used only on white fabrics, because it contains chlorine bleach.
SR101 Reader says:
Do not be misled by the Clorox Bleach Stain Remover pretreater spray for white clothing. Most white clothing cannot tolerate products that contain chlorine bleach.
If you use this product to remove a stain on a white garment that permits the use of non chlorine bleach (but not chlorine bleach) it is likely to leave a yellow stain.
At least this was my experience when I attempted to remove a tomato sauce stain from a white shirt.
This pretreater is only to be used on white garments that can be bleached, and from my experience there are few being produced.
I believe the packaging of this product can easily mislead the consumer.
Thanks so much for this review, although I'm sorry you had a bad experience with the product.
I did some research about this product, since I hadn't actually realized it was available. There are actually two types of products from Clorox for laundry pretreating, those which are for use only with whites (what you used) and those which are color-safe, labeled as Clorox 2 products.
I did note that this pretreater should only stay on the garment for 5-10 minutes before washing, which makes sense since it contains chlorine bleach.
The website does state that it is "Not recommended for use on silk, wool, mohair, spandex and non-fast colors." However, it does say "Most white garments can be pre-treated" with this product.
Therefore, I would love to hear from even more people who've used it on white clothing, sharing if it works well for you, or if you are also getting a yellow stain from using it on these fabrics.
