Tips to Choose the Right Product for Laundry: (Clorox 2, OxiClean, or Vinegar)

Written By

When doing laundry, it’s only the right product for laundry that can ensure our clothes come out looking and smelling fresh. However, with so many laundry detergents and stain removers available, it can be tough to know which products to use for specific stains or fabrics.

Many people turn to three popular laundry products: Clorox 2, OxiClean, and vinegar. Each product has unique properties that can help tackle different stains and fabrics. But when should you use each one?

Clorox 2, OxiClean, and vinegar

Clorox 2 is a color-safe bleach designed to brighten and remove stains from strong, colored clothes without damaging the fabric. It is also a good disinfectant for sanitizing laundry. If you’re not interested in sorting your clothes by color or just don’t have time, this product is for you.

OxiClean is a powerful stain remover that breaks down and lifts stains from fabric. It's excellent for removing tough stains like grass, grease, and blood from all materials, including whites and colors. It’s also a brightener like Clorox 2 and works better with hot water. OxiClean is an oxygen bleach, making it much milder on your clothes than Clorox 2.

Vinegar is a natural product that can help to remove stains, brighten colors, and eliminate odors. It's gentle enough to use on all fabrics and particularly effective at removing sweat stains and odors from clothes. It’s also perfect for mold removal on all colors of cloth and can work as a fabric softener. 

PS: Using vinegar often with your washing machine can damage the seals and hoses, so you’ll have to be minimal. 

So, which one should you use for your laundry? It depends on the type of stain and the fabric you're dealing with. For colored clothes with tough stains, Clorox 2 is a great option. If you're dealing with heavy stains on white or colored fabrics, OxiClean is the way to go. And if you're looking for a natural way to freshen up your clothes and remove sweat stains and odors, vinegar is an excellent choice.

How to Choose the Right Product for Laundry

  • Consider the type of stain: For tough stains like coffee, wine, or blood, Clorox 2 or OxiClean may be the best option.
  • Consider the fabric type: It's better to use a milder product like vinega for delicate fabrics. However, vinegar is not very good for stretchy clothes as the acid content reduces elasticity over time.
  • Always read the product label and follow the manufacturer's instructions.
  • Test new products on a small, inconspicuous area of your clothes before using them on more prominent stains or areas.
  • Don't mix bleach or bleach-based products with other cleaning products, as they can create dangerous chemical reactions.


Each of these laundry products has unique properties that can help tackle different types of stains and fabrics. You can keep your clothes looking and smelling fresh by understanding when to use Clorox 2, OxiClean, and vinegar. Remember to always test new products, follow the manufacturer's instructions, and never mix bleach with other cleaning products.
