  • I think OxiClean works great for most things, and it's not as harsh on clothes or on sensitive skin (and doesn't smell as bad) as bleach. Now, I do use bleach for some things on occasion, but usually for disinfecting something (e.g. for my son's potty chair while we're potty training) rather than on clothes. Sometimes adding a little OxiClean to a load of laundry helps, but the most helpful thing is to soak the item in the OxiClean for a while (as soon as possible after it's stained), and that usually does the trick for us.

  • I use bleach. I've tried Oxy-Clean in the past and not been greatly impressed. Bleach is a lot cheaper, besides.

  • I use both. Bleach for whites, Oxy-clean for all my daughter's mud-stained colored clothes.
