5 Powerful Benefits of Cleaning With Bleach

Parenthood — it's the great equalizer. Ask any mom and she’ll be more than happy to share her war stories, from diaper blowouts to potty training nightmares to spilled milk and mysterious substances on every surface. One thing's for sure: Kids are lovable, cute, funny, and most of all — messy.

As a mom, one of the first things you learn to master is keeping the mess — and the germs — at bay. Enter Clorox® Clean-Up® Cleaner + Bleach. Whether you're attempting to keep your home germ-free for a new baby, cleaning a toddler’s messy play room, or disinfecting the kitchen before and after mommy’s littlest sous chef helps make cookies, when it comes to keeping their families healthy and safe, moms turn to the power of bleach.

And for good reason — bleach wipes out bacteria and is effective at removing stains and odors, so it’s powerful enough to keep your family protected, but safe enough to be part of your daily cleaning routine.

Here are 5 powerful benefits of cleaning with bleach, straight from the real-life mom trenches.

1. It works harder than other cleaning products

Accessories should be cute; your cleaning products don't have to be. Skip the flowery fragrances and ineffective formulas and go straight for an unmatched germ fighter like bleach, which kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses. Incorporating bleach into your daily cleaning routine can help fight against the flu and other illnesses while still being safe enough to use at home around your family.

2. It multitasks so you don't have to

Moms are busy, so they need a product that has more than one purpose and is able to be used in different areas of the home. Bleach cleans, degreases surfaces, and removes odors all while killing the majority of bacteria and viruses. And whether it's your glass shower door, bathtub, sink, countertops, or cabinets that need a good clean, Clorox® Clean-Up® Cleaner + Bleach is up for the job.

3. It helps stop the spread of classroom germs

Kids are bad at sharing, except when it comes to germs. So when there's a cold or flu outbreak at school (which, let's be honest, is pretty often), protect your home by disinfecting much-touched kitchen and bathroom surfaces with bleach to keep your kids — and your family — healthy.

4. It makes your home guest-ready (and helps you clean up later)

Since it removes stains, dirt, and grime, AND helps eliminate odors, Clorox® Clean-Up® Cleaner + Bleach is the one cleaning product you need to get your house ready for visitors. And after they depart, you can use the same product on highly trafficked surfaces like door handles, light switches, and drawer knobs, so you can keep your home clean, no matter how many friends pass through.

5. It makes potty training a breeze

Potty training isn’t exactly known for being a clean process, but moms know that when it comes to this challenging time in their family's life, you can't afford to mess around with the mess. Clean up and disinfect inevitable accidents with a spray of bleach and you’ll feel way more confident during this tumultuous stage knowing you have the tools to clean anything that comes your way.
