More than a Stain Fighter – 3 Uses for the Oxygen Brightener

Oxygen Brightener

It’s safe to say we all have a favourite use for oxygen (hint: we wouldn’t be here without it!), but did you know oxygen has a second favourite use? Nellie’s Oxygen Brightener uses the power of oxygen to penetrate stains and strip away dirt, odor, and grime to keep your colours bright and your whites white. The chlorine-free formula is colour-safe, septic-safe, hypoallergenic, environmentally-friendly, and biodegradable. But even better, it’s a multi-use product! What else can you use the Oxygen Brightener for? Keep reading to find out!

Pre-Soak or Hand Wash

To penetrate deep stains or to hand wash delicate items, use your Oxygen Brightener. Separate whites from colours, and use only one tablespoon of Oxygen Brightener along with Nellie’s Laundry Soda in 10L (2.5 gallons) of WARM or HOT water. Soak for 30 minutes and then rinse thoroughly. If you’re pre-soaking, follow with wash in your machine with Nellie’s Laundry Soda.

General Stain Remover

Oxygen is powerful – you can use it on things other than fabrics! Create a solution using 1 tablespoon of Oxygen Brightener per 500ml (16oz) of water. Use on upholstery, fabrics, kitchen floors, counters, trash cans, and all other water-washable surfaces. Apply the solution to the stain, wait 1 to 5 minutes, and then scrub with a sponge or blot with a towel. Rinse thoroughly, and allow to dry. Ta-dah! Stain free in no time.

Carpet Spot Remover

Spills happen, but whether it’s coffee, wine, or worse, don’t worry! Simply create a solution of 1 tablespoon of Oxygen Brightener per 500ml (16oz) of water. Soak up any excess liquid before applying the solution to the stain. Use just enough solution to cover the stained area. Wait 1 to 5 minutes, and then soak up with a white towel. Repeat if necessary, and then rinse thoroughly with water and blot dry. Once the area is totally dry, hit it with the vacuum. If the pesky stain is deeply set in your carpet, try using your WOW Mop! The oscillating pads tackle tough stains effortlessly.

Oxygen is powerful – too powerful for wool, silk, or leather, so don’t use it on those! We also don’t recommend using the Oxygen Brightener on jewelry, latex paints, or wood.
