Term Definition

There are two kinds of bleaches: chlorine and oxygen. Chlorine bleach can be used with any washable, natural, colorfast fiber. Oxygen bleach is milder than chlorine bleach and is generally safe for most washable fabrics. Oxygen bleach should never be used with chlorine bleach, as they will neutralize each other.
