    why we love it

    We know how hard it is to keep your daily whites white. Formulated with natural bleach alternative, surfactants, and stain-fighting enzymes, this product keeps your whites not only clean, but bright as new.

    This product may be used safely on colors.

    how to use it


    • Sort laundry before washing. Always wash white items together. 
    • It is best to wash and dry sheets and towels together, separate from everyday laundry. 
    • Pretreat stains with Stain Solution or the Wash & Stain Bar. Always treat stains first and pre-soak for the most effective removal. 
    • Pre-soak for super dingy whites. Make a bath of hot water and All-Purpose Bleach Alternative. Soak items for at least an hour. 

    Machine Wash

    • Launder with hot water and Whites Detergent. Add All-Purpose Bleach Alternative directly to the drum of the washing machine. 


    • Do not dry any items that still have stains. 
    • Hang to dry on a line in the sun for energy efficiency, natural whitening and that fresh line experience…or use the dryer.


    Plant-derived anionic and nonionic surfactants, stain-fighting and cleaning enzymes (protease, amylase, cellulase, lipase), mineral-derived cleaning enhancers (borax, sodium gluconate, and calcium chloride), essential oils, and fragrance.
