Bleach!!

For the past 14 years, I’ve always bought store brand bleach. I wasn’t happy with what it did toy clothes. They weren’t white enough and it would burn holes in things!! So… I quit using bleach for the most part.

A few weeks ago I decided to try bleaching my kids socks and undershirts. Things are just too dingy. I was shopping at that big chain store that starts with a W and ends with mart, but they were out of their brand of laundry. So… I got Clorox.

Whites are getting whiter! I was impressed!! And excited! Then yesterday something happened that made me decide that (get ready) STORE BRAND BLEACH IS NOT WORTH THE PENNIES IN SAVINGS!!!

Ready to hear why?!

Okay! Here it goes!

I have a couple of plastic coffee cups from Disneyland and one of the lid parts on two of these cups were not coming out clean. I had soaked one in cheap bleach and nothing changed. Well yesterday, I soaked both in Clorox an hot water. Not only did they come out looking brand new, but the container they were in had a leak and bleached my sink whiter than I’ve ever seen it!!

I have an older, white ceramic sink that has been used like crazy and is full of scratches. I’ve scrubbed the living day lights out of that sink at least weekly with a bleach cleanser for over 4 years. I promise you- it has never looked this good! I just stare at it and smile!

So I’ve decided that while I’m all for saving money and buying store brands, bleach is one product I will no longer compromise on!! Besides, Clorox comes in fragrances that actually almost smell good!!!

Happy bleaching!!!
