When you want to get your whites white on laundry day, there are plenty of reasons to skip adding chlorine bleach to the wash. Numerous studies show that bleach can have an adverse effect on respiratory health, and it’s highly corrosive to the skin and eyes. A much safer alternative is to use hydrogen peroxide, which breaks down in water and uses oxygen to naturally whiten. One cup of hydrogen peroxide with regular laundry detergent is a safe, natural alternative to bleach.
