"Bleach" whites without chlorine? How do I get "bleach" white without bleach? I have used Ms. Stewart's liquid bluing and oxiclean, but they don't seem to do it on little boy socks. I cannot ABIDE bleach-smell after an unfortunate and misguided overdose of it powerwashing the house, and I am now a little more aware of how dangerous it is. I have a septic system and try not to use hot water for washing clothes all that often. Anyone have any ideas?

Hang problem items in the sun--the sun naturally bleaches out stains.

For small stains, try a bleach pen. Yes, it's bleach, but in a very controlled distribution method.

I've had really good luck with Amway's Trizyme--it does a great job getting out all sorts of stains. I've had friends swear by Oxyclean, for the same reasons.

Country Save also produces an excellent non-chlorine bleach called Country Save Oxygen Powered Bleach. It safely whitens whites and even brightens colored fabrics without the use of chlorine. Available through Amazon!
