? I never heard of it until now either! This is a product made by Tropical Traditions! Not only did I get to try this out, they`re offering up this same product for giveaway to one of my lucky readers!
Â So I got this stuff in and didn`t know what to do with it. So I decided to give it a try on my carpet. We really need new carpet but until we can afford that, I`m trying to get rid of all these old stains since I`m just tired of looking at them. I`ve tried all sorts of things. Finally, I think I found something that I think will work! I only did a test spot, but the spot I used on my carpet seems to have improved! I would have done more but the spray bottle I have wasn`t working properly and just being a pain so I resorted to pouring into the stain instead of spraying. And I have to say, I`m glad I did!
The bleach is in a powder form with instructions on the container how to use it in the various places. It doesn`t have a strong odor like your typical liquid bleach does. So I don`t feel like I`m gagging every time I use it! I really enjoyed this product, as I do most of Tropical Traditions products. I love that I can use it for various projects, but most of all, I love that it`s getting stains out of my horrible carpet that have been there for a long time!
More info about the Oxygen Bleach:
People have been using chlorine bleach in their laundries since the end of the 18th century. While these products work very well in whitening clothes, chlorine bleaches do have a negative effect upon the environment because of their chemistry. Care must be taken in using chlorine bleach as it is toxic to humans, animals, and plants.* Also, we all have experienced destroying a colored article of clothing because chlorine bleach was accidentally spilled on it.
Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach is a safe and effective alternative to chlorine based products and it can be used in many applications in and around the home. It is based on sodium percarbonate which uses oxygen for destaining and deodorizing. Oxygen Bleach is safe to use at all temperatures, on most washable fabrics, and all colors, in hard or soft water, and is compatible with other household cleaners. Also, it produces no harmful by-products which negatively affect the environment. Unlike chlorine bleach, which can merely cover up a stain, Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach attacks and breaks down organic stains to totally remove them from the garment.
