1. Test

Do a bleachability test (3 tsp. Albex™ Bleach to ¼ cup water and apply a drop of this solution to a less visible part of the garment area like inside seam, hemline or cuff. Wait minute and then blot dry. No colour change means you can safely bleach.

For large stains on white clothing or fabrics, pre-soak the entire item in a solution of ½ cup of Albex™ Bleach into 5 Litres of water. Submerge the garment for 5 minutes.


3. Wash

Wash immediately in the hottest water recommended by the care label using detergent and 1 cup of Albex™ Bleach.
