I cannot remember if I read it on the internet or watched it on tv or heard it from the "Marites" that vinegar is a good agent for bleaching. It is said to remove stains on clothes. It is also said to be safe on colored clothes. So, I tried it on our laundry. Surprisingly, it makes our white clothes whiter, it removes the stains on our coloreds and it leaves a fresh scent alongside with fabcon. A solvent that is sometimes underrated and known only in the kitchen has a lot of use instead. Have you tried using vinegar as a bleaching agent?

Chlorine is better, vinegar only contains 5% acetic acid, it does not kill germs.

@cacay1 I have no idea what Zonrox is, I use very little bleach because I cannot stand the smell.

@LadyDuck, that's awesome, but at home we use Zonrox.

Not yet, but now, I want to try it. Chlorox can sometimes leave a strong odor and it's harmful to the skin. But it should be white vinegar, right? and not the colored one...

I use the commercial vinegar which is white in color. I haven't tried any like paombong or cider.

I would use white vinegar and bleach if I had to.

I've heard it good to clean titles. I'll try it to some clothes with stains.

can you please share how you use it, step-by-step? how much vinegar per load of laundry in the washing machine? when you do add it - with the detergent or during rinsing?

I just put a 3 table spoon of vinegar on the first rinse (using washing machine). Sometimes, I mix it on the powdered soap. I have no procedure yet. I am still on the experiment stage. But they both works.
