Definition:

Oxygen-based or All-Fabric Bleach works more slowly than chlorine bleach and contains sodium perborate, sodium precarbonate or hydrogen peroxide. It is safe for use on almost all washable fabrics and colors.

When this bleach is used in the wash, the chemical ingredient oxidizes to help remove soil and organic matter brightening the fabric and removing stains.

Brand names include OxiClean, Clorox 2, Country Save Bleach, Purex 2 Color Safe Bleach.
