Oxygen bleach is a non-toxic, safe and gentle biodegradable alternative to chlorine bleach that effectively removes stains and brightens the whites in your laundry. When dissolved in water at temperatures over 40°C it releases oxygen which acts as a powerful stain remover and disinfectant. It's ideal for whitening and deodorising your laundry and is even safe on colours as it wont cause them to fade.
Our oxygen bleach is natural, simple and effective way to add extra cleaning power to your wash, combating tough stains during your machine cycle or as a pre-soak without resorting to chlorine bleach. It breaks down into components when dissolved with water and provides cleaning action while the sodium softens the water.
Oxygen bleach is also called sodium percarbonate. This comes in powder form which is water soluble. It then breaks down into hydrogen peroxide and sodium carbonate. These are biodegradable and non-toxic containing no nitrogen or phosphorous. Sodium percarbonate does not create harmful fumes like chlorine bleach.
Oxygen bleach is an effective mould remover and is better than chlorine bleach. You can add the oxygen bleach and water solution to a spray bottle to apply it to the moldy surface. If you prefer, apply it with a cloth, sponge or scrubbing brush.
After you have applied the solution to the mold, let it sit for about 15 minutes. Then thoroughly rinse and wipe the area with water.
