Bleaching Care

04/12/17

Bleaching used to be a common practice especially with commercial cleaners of bedding, table cloths and napkins. It naturally gets rid of the last remnants of stains and often sanitises and brightens too, so with fabrics known to be safe it makes sense to use a bleaching cycle in the wash. 

When you think of bleach most of us think of common household bleach, which is normally sodium hypochlorite, a chlorine bleach. If you check a garment label and see a  triangular symbol, especially if it has "Cl" in it,  you can use it on that particular garment - but if it's crossed through you can't (see right). 

There are two other types of bleach that are also often used on fabric, sodium hydrosulphite (found in colour removing products such as "Colour Run") and hydrogen peroxide (that is often used on hair - such as with the peroxide blond - and is normally safe on wool), As these are not based on chlorine both should be safe to use even if a care label suggests that you can't use chlorine bleach.

However, all bleaches can and will cause damage to fabrics if you don't take care when you bleach.

To protect your clothes and laundry follow these basic rules:
  1. Never add neat bleach directly to a wash. 
    Doing so could cause immediate bleach damage to your garments. It could also lead to "Hot Spots" of bleach in the wash which can again lead to damage.
  2. Don't bleach at temperatures higher than 60o C. 
    Heating bleach increases it's effectiveness, so you get a quicker and more complete result. However, control is important, so you can remove a garment if the reaction is too fast or you see anything you don't like, and that is far harder to achieve at higher temperatures.
  3. Always measure the amount of bleach you're using and always mix and dilute the bleach first.
    Bleaching is similar to dyeing, in that the weight of the fabric will change the amount you use. So follow the instructions to ensure that you don't get a mix that's too rich or too weak. 
  4. If adding directly to a stain use a dropper and make sure the bleach is well diluted. 
    Using a dropper makes it easier to add the bleach exactly where you want it with little chance of spreading it to other areas. It's better to start with very diluted bleach and then increase the strength if necessary as opposed to starting with too strong a mixture that causes instant damage.
  5. If adding to a wash then make sure the cage is rotating when you do.
    The reasoning for this is similar to adding bleach directly to a wash, in that you want to spread the mixture throughout a wash, limiting the chance of adding too much in any one area of a garment.
