For the longest time, we have relied on the power of chlorine bleach for our whitening and disinfecting needs. However, while it is effective and readily available, it has its fair share of cons—it burns the skin, it's poisonous and it increases your carbon footprint. 

Lucky for us, oxygen bleach has come into play. This A+ substitute for its chemical-based counterpart uses an oxidizer to break chemical bonds and release the substances that causes staining or mold growth. If you're still not convinced of the power this wonder powder has, here are a few reasons that might push you to make the switch: 

1. It gets rid of stains without use of chemicals.

Powdered oxygen bleach is made from organic soda ash, borax and hydrogen peroxide. It doesn't have toxic chlorine content that can burn your skin or create holes on clothes. 

2. It is highly color-safe.

Unlike chlorine bleach, you're not limited to whites when it comes to using an oxy-cleaner. You can use it to remove dirt and stains from brightly colored pieces without fear of fading the fabric or pigments transferring to other clothes.  

3. In fact, it brightens fabrics.

Believe it or not, oxygen bleach has the power to keep different fabrics vibrant. Plus, it's safe for all kinds of cloth and materials so you don't have to worry about tears or cuts. 

4. It is an effective disinfectant. 

Since it has heavy hydrogen peroxide components, it can be a very powerful antiseptic for bacteria and unknown viruses that can be lurking around your home. 

5. It is safe for washing machines. 

Not a lot of people know that consistently using chlorine bleach can damage the steel parts of a washing machine engine. To extend the lifespan of your unit, consider switching to a more natural alternative.
