Q: Does this kill mold and mildew?

submitted by Elle - 3 years ago

Q: Does this have a strong scent? Can you use it in place of fabric softener? Or do you use it along with softener? Id like something that can effectively get odors from my towels, but also does not make them hard, like bleach.

submitted by Kim - 3 years ago
  • A: Thanks for asking, Kim. While we don't expect the scent of our Clorox Laundry Sanitizer to be overbearing, it does have a fresh clean scent. Yes, we recommend using it in the fabric softener compartment of your washer exclusively in the rinse cycle. We don't recommend mixing laundry detergents in the main wash compartment. If you're looking to get rid of those odors, this will do the trick! We hope this helps. If you have any additional questions, please reach back out to us at 800-292-2200 and reference this number: 210219-000207. Have a great day! Jeffery from The Clorox Team

Clorox Fabric Odor Remover is amazing. It keeps strong smelly odors out of clothing, bed sheets, and pillows. When I add it to my washed laundry it smells excellent. The results will amaze you once you use this product.

For a woman, I sweat, a lot. There is nothing worse than wearing a “freshly” laundered shirt only to smell funk the minute I start sweating. Enter Clorox Laundry Sanitizer! I spray the pits of my shirts before I wash them and Voila!, the stench is gone! I find it extremely satisfying seeing it bubble and froth, attacking the embedded bacteria in the fabric. It’s a literal must-have when doing laundry. I also use it on my sheets and pillowcases,because, gross.

Stupid Cap

I have been using Lysol sanitizer for several years now. I was just about to try this brand when I realized how stupid their cap design is. That alone will keep me from ever trying this product. It will leak all the way down the side of the bottle unless you rinse the cap every time.

HEAVY perfume. Seems like it might just add fragrance rather than eliminate smell producing bacteria. I won’t buy it again.

This laundry sanitizer is so easy to add and leaves the load feeling, smelling, and looking fresh without overwhleming fragrance. Surprisingly, it's also gentle on our family's sensitive skin!
