We'd like to introduce our latest product in the Meliora Cleaning Products family....Oxygen Brightener!
Bleach-Free, Fragrance-Free, and Plastic-Free, our Oxygen Brightener is a people- and planet-friendly bleach alternative for laundry, as well as a heckuva cleaning boost. Add it to your laundry machine, or use it to pre-soak really gnarly items. We've even seen our friends at Celsious even turn it into a stain-removing paste! When sustainable laundry experts are using it, we know we're onto something.
The magic ingredient that attacks dirt and stains is Sodium Percarbonate. In short, it's solid hydrogen peroxide (it's a little more complex, but that's the gist) that loosens up dirt and stains from just about any surface. Add a tablespoon to your whites to kick up the cleaning a notch, or toss a tiny bit in a well-used coffee mug to make them look new. The number of uses around the home are endless.
One tablespoon for a normal load of laundry is all you need. It’s been tested with colored fabrics for color-fastness but we recommend not using it with wool or silk fabrics. If you’re using it for general household cleaning, you can mix 1 tablespoon of the Oxygen Brightener with 8-16 oz. of warm water (about ¼- to ½- cup of Oxygen Brightener per gallon of water).
All that's left of the sodium percarbonate once it's done cleaning is oxygen and water. Yep, it's biodegradable and non-bioaccumulative.
You can check out the results on some of our own coffee mugs below:
Like all of our products, our Oxygen Brightener is MADE SAFE Certified, Cruelty-Free, and Made in Chicago by an amazing team of people who are paid a living wage. Available in a 2-lb. cardboard and steel plastic-free canister of Unscented Oxygen Brightener, bleach alternative awesomeness.
For now, it's only available on our website, but we'll be rolling it out to other vendors soon.
