Oxygen or all-fabric bleach work mores slowly and gently than chlorine bleach and contains sodium perborate or sodium precarbonate. It is most often safe for use on all washable fabrics and colors.

When this bleach is used in the wash, the chemical ingredient oxidizes to help remove soil and organic matter and brightens the fabric. Oxygen bleach does not disinfect fabrics of viruses and bacteria. It can be used in any temperature water.
