  • Clorox and Clorox 2 (for colors) from the get go! On their onesies, socks, burp cloths, and ESPECIALLY once they hit toddler stage--when they discovered dirt, mud, tried feeding themselves, etc. I have boys....bleach is their friend!!

  • I would never have bleach in my home. Vinegar kills just as many germs, and can't hurt anyone.

  • I have never put bleach on anyones clothes. Bleach only had 1 purpose in our home - for DH to clean out the sprayer (weed, bug, etc - outdoor use). We've gone through less than 2 gallons in 5 or 6 years - I've only bought bleach twice in our marriage and we got one in a box one time that someone dropped off.

  • I never use bleach on clothes. I've only used bleach once and that was when we had tree roots grow into our sewer line and cause a major backup. The toilet basically flushed into the bathtub. Fun times.
