Laundry detergent with bleach alternative? What is it?

Is it just to brighten the whites and the colored clothes?
or is there bleaching affects to kills germs too? When I think of bleach I think of disinfectant killing germs.
I like to use a little bleach on the bedding and with the towels, now does this do the trick or do I have to add bleach to kill the germs?

  • Um, it's usually used just to enhance the color. However, you do realize if you wash your bedding in hot water, you are also killing germs, don't you? You seriously don't have to add bleach to do that. That will ruin your stuff.
