If you are reading this, then you know how challenging it can be to get those pesky odors out of urine soaked laundry.

Some caregivers prefer to wash clothing in hot water and bleach to kill the germs which works very well, but you can only use bleach on white clothing – or it is ruined.  Bleach can also be very harsh causing early wear and tear on clothing items.  Here are some bleach alternatives that work wonders!
