Review & Giveaway: Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach



I've tried several Tropical Traditions products over the past month & I think it's pretty clear that I love them! Well, I've found another product to add to the "LOVE IT!" category, the Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach!

As all cloth diapering mamas know, occasionally you can get a bad case of the stinkies. We battled this problem for several months until I finally found a cure: adding a tablespoon of bleach to the last rinse cycle! Since I've done this, we've had no stinkies. But now we have a new problem. Bleach spots on my adorable diapers!

Since Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach comes in a powder, not a liquid, we no longer have this problem! Now my diapers aren't stinky and no more bleached out spots!

Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach has many other household uses, too!
  • To destain and deodorize carpets add one ounce of Oxygen Bleach per gallon of carpet shampoo prior to cleaning.
  • To remove mold and mildew from carpeting add 2-4 ounces of Oxygen Bleach per gallon of hot water, apply generously to stain, wait 10 minutes, then vacuum with extractor.
  • For acoustic tiles add 6 ounces of Oxygen Bleach per gallon of hot water, spray on tiles, wait 15 minutes then rinse.
  • For mops add 3 ounces of Oxygen Bleach to a gallon of hot water, soak overnight then rinse.
  • For mildew removal or to clean baseboards or basement floors after water damage from flooding add 4 ounces of Oxygen Bleach to a gallon of hot water, scrub surface, wait 30 minutes then rinse. Oxygen Bleach is safe for use in a closed environment.
  • To clean and deodorize cat litter boxes soak them in 3 ounces of Oxygen Bleach per gallon of water for 20 minutes then rinse.
  • For urine, feces, or vomit stains on carpets or upholstery, add one teaspoon of Oxygen Bleach to 8 ounces of water, wipe onto stain, wait 10 minutes then rinse.



People have been using chlorine bleach in their laundries since the end of the 18th century. While these products work very well in whitening clothes, chlorine bleaches do have a negative effect upon the environment because of their chemistry. Care must be taken in using chlorine bleach as it is toxic to humans, animals, and plants.* Also, we all have experienced destroying a colored article of clothing because chlorine bleach was accidentally spilled on it.

Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach is a safe and effective alternative to chlorine based products and it can be used in many applications in and around the home. It is based on sodium percarbonate which uses oxygen for destaining and deodorizing. Oxygen Bleach is safe to use at all temperatures, on most washable fabrics, and all colors, in hard or soft water, and is compatible with other household cleaners. Also, it produces no harmful by-products which negatively affect the environment. Unlike chlorine bleach, which can merely cover up a stain, Tropical Traditions Oxygen Bleach attacks and breaks down organic stains to totally remove them from the garment.
