Bright Spot in the Black Hole Called Laundry

In July I did a review on the Clorox Anywhere! Sanitizing Spray. Imagine my surprise when I received another request from Clorox, asking if I would review their new Clorox Ultimate Care Bleach. I felt quite honored that they would ask me to do it again.

All I can say is that I LOVE this stuff!

One of my most despised chores is doing the whites. Oh, I cannot tell you the number of shirts that are spotted due to the splashing of bleach into the bleach dispenser! I always managed to get bleach on me somehow, even when I think that I've foiled the bleach demons.

But with this new product from Clorox, I don't have to worry about it anymore. Thank you, God! I really mean that; this product is heavenly.

This new bleach is wonderful in so many ways. Not only is it thick, so I don't have to deal with any splashing, it is gentle enough to put directly into the wash. I just fill the lid and pour it into the tub. No dispenser needed. No measuring cup dirtied. No worrying about getting it directly on the clothes because it is gentle enough to pretreat directly onto a stain. It's laundry paradise as far as I'm concerned...

And it works wonders. I've had some stubborn stains that I could not remove, but one pre-treatment took the stains away. One was a rust stain and one was just an old food stain; they both came out in one wash. Plus, the entire load of whites looked brighter. All this, and I used less than I would if I used regular bleach.

I haven't even mentioned that this bleach smells really good nor that it doesn't harden the whites. I didn't put a fabric softner sheet and the clothes still came out soft and fresh. I've tried it several times with the same results.

Clorox Ultimate Care is easy to use. Just add it into the wash with your detergent, using its premarked 6 oz line on the lid and let it do its thing. It really is that simple.

So I am looking at the benefits here:
  • using less bleach
  • not needing fabric softner
  • saving stained whites
  • not replacing ruined shirts
  • finding a way to do a chore so that I don't mind to do as much
I love this product, and not because it was a free sample. Even if Clorox Ultimate Care costs a little more, it will definitely be a product is on my "necessary" cleaning supply list.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask or you can check out Clorox and check it out for yourself.

Me? I'm giving it two very white thumbs up!
