Oxygen Bleach - The Gentle Alternative

What is Oxygen Bleach?

Oxygen Bleach is a single ingredient stain removal and cleaning product. Made from Sodium Per-Carbonate it works by releasing oxygen when exposed to water. 

The release of oxygen lifts stains from the surface or material that you are cleaning.

Why should I use Oxygen Bleach vs. Chlorine Bleach?

It’s safer for the environment - When Oxygen Bleach comes into contact with water it breaks down into oxygen, water, and soda ash. This makes it biodegradable and non-harmful to the environment. 

It’s safer for your health - Chlorine bleach can be harmful when it is ingested, inhaled or comes into contact with your skin. Regular use of bleach can have long-term impacts on your health and can increase your chances of developing lung disease, according to a 30-year study by Harvard University. 

Sodium Per-carbonate does not share these health risks, however, you should not ingest it, and take care to avoid contact with your eyes.

It is gentle on your clothes - Oxygen Bleach does not corrode fabric fibers like chlorine bleach does. You should however avoid using it on delicate materials such as wool and silk. 

It is safe to use on colours - We’ve all made the mistake of accidentally bleach dying our favourite shirt. Oxygen bleach can be used on coloured clothing (Although we’d always recommend doing a patch test on unstable fabric dyes).

It’s safe to mix with other products - You can add a scoop of Oxygen Bleach to our Laundry Powder to give your load a stain removing boost. 

Mixing normal bleach with other cleaning products can be toxic and dangerous. 

Because, less is more - Our Oxygen Bleach is made with one active ingredient and is free from fillers, preservatives, and fragrance. 

How do I use Oxygen Bleach?

Oxygen Bleach is a multi-purpose product and can be used for a variety of home cleaning tasks. 

Laundry - Dissolve 100 ml in a bowl of hot water as a pre-soak or add 50ml - 100 ml to laundry powder in your washing machine.

Home Cleaning - Dissolve 125ml per 4 liters of water for an effective bathroom, carpet and kitchen cleaner.

Oxygen Bleach activates once it comes into contact with water. We recommend using hot/boiling water to make it dissolve quicker. 

Take Note: Once the hot water is added the foam starts growing quickly, so make sure you have a large enough bucket/bowl to prevent it from running over or burning your hands.
