I’ve always used bleach when I do white laundry - to whiten it and to kill germs.
And during Covid, I think lots of people use bleach who didn’t before.
There are 2 kinds of bleach- brand doesn’t matter.
One is just regular bleach and one is called no-splash or dripless. That’s not the only difference.
The plain bleach kills 99.9% of germs
While the dripless kind just whitens, brightens and deodorizes.
So if you’ve bought bleach to fight germs, you might want to check and see if you have germ killing formula.
It doesn’t matter what brand - the no splash kind for any brand is not a germ killer while the original formula does kill germs.
I know lots of people never use bleach and prefer natural or less harsh cleaners.
But I like to kill germs and will watch my bleach labels from now on.
