Bleaching agents are substances that weaken the colour of raw materials in the paper and textile industry. It is very popular for this purpose, especially when washing textiles. This chemically destroys substances contained in the fibres of clothing and discolours them. This is usually done by oxidation of the substances. The following guide gives tips on what a bleaching agent can be used for and what should be considered when selecting and using it.

The bleaching agents are used in particular in the textile and paper industry to whiten natural-coloured fibres and eliminate discolouration. Nowadays, oxygen-based bleaching agents are mainly used for textile cleaning in the private sector. Hydrogen peroxide in particular is used for liquid bleaching and sodium perborate in powder bleaching. Chlorine-based bleaching is used in industrial textile cleaning and processing. Chlorine directly releases oxygen radicals, but is a heavy burden on the environment and should therefore be avoided.

A bleaching agent is used to remove unwanted colour stains or yellowing from textiles. The product also has a disinfectant and antibacterial effect. However, it should be borne in mind that a bleaching agent can also attack sensitive colours. Fine and coloured detergents therefore usually do not contain bleaching agents. If individual textile areas are to be treated, a bleaching agent from a spray bottle, which is applied specifically, is suitable. The garment can be washed normally in the machine after a short exposure time. If the bleaching agent is to be used to remove grey haze or discolouration from entire textiles, it can be added directly to the laundry. The following product is recommended for this purpose:

The hygienic bleach, which has an antibacterial effect from 20° C, contains active oxygen. It removes odours, stains and is gentle on fibres and dyes. The bleaching agent is chlorine-free and unscented. It is also suitable for textiles that come into contact with the skin, such as underwear and nightwear, socks, blouses (including baby and children’s underwear) and for sweaty and damp textiles that tend to have a bad odour, as is often the case with sportswear or sauna towels. Before use, it is important to test whether the fabric is suitable for the bleaching agent in a concealed area before washing. If discoloration occurs after ten minutes, the fabric is not colourfast. Never allow undiluted bleach to act on a substance for a longer period of time. In the bathroom and kitchen, the bleaching agent is suitable for hard surfaces such as tiles, shower trays and kitchen worktops. For bleaching agents, the dosage and application instructions of the manufacturer should always be observed. These are usually specified exactly.

A bleaching agent is ideal for removing yellowing and a grey haze from white and light textiles, lightening the colour of a garment, bleaching out partial stains and disinfecting textiles. Since a bleaching agent contains sharp substances, any contact with the eyes and mucous membranes must be avoided at all costs. The product must also be stored in such a way that children have no access to it.
