  • Pure oxygen bleach
  • Removes stains & brightens laundry

  • Dilute with warm water to use for general cleaning all round the home (1 cup to 4 litres of warm water, or more for heavy cleaning, or mix to a paste with a small quantity of water to form a powerful cleaning scrub for showers etc.).
  • Sprinkle in toilet bowl and leave for 15 mins or more before scrubbing to clean and disinfect.

I am so impressed with this amazing product. We as a family have recently started a more natural lifestyle and are ditching all the harmful chemicals found in regular store bought Household products. This oxygen bleach works fantastically. Our laundry is white with no nasty fumes like when you use the "normal " store bought liquid products. We will only use this in future. Good for my family and our planet.Definitely a win in our home. Love this product.

Great product, I add it to my laundry powder
09/03/2020, By Catherine
I had very messy reusable piping bags and cloths after baking with food colouring. I was amazed at how quickly and how well this bleach worked. Looking forward to using it further.

It is the first time I use The Apothecary's Oxcy Bleach and am highly impressed. I often use it when I have a burnt pot or pan. Just sprinkle on the burnt bottom, leave for about 10 minutes and add some hot water and leave. It foams and eats away all the gunk and no scouring is needed.
24/02/2020, By Leonette
What a wonderful discovery! Gentle, yet highly effective with SO many uses!! Will definitely buy it again.
12/02/2020, By Ruth
Works really well and environment friendly. Throw your Jik away and use this instead.

Good one

works wonderfully on my whites
20/01/2020, By Andrea
I COULD NOT BELIEVE how well this stuff worked. It lifted a blood stain out of white guest linen perfectly. As in - I COULD NOT even FIND where it was. BUT - I did soak it for 40 min before washing. All my clothes are coming out SO clean now.

I bought a second-hand lace/crotchet top online and when I received it, it had self-tan stains on the arms and the neckline. I was nervous to use this on such delicate material, but I soaked it for a few hours and it is snow white, and has not been damaged at all. I highly highly recommend this. It also removed some stains from my taps in the bathroom. It did not make my skin or eyes burn. I trust this product and it works excellently. Thank you.

Add this to every single “whites and lights” load I wash.
27/11/2019, By Brenda
The lady who does our laundry will now not use anything else! She used to believe only in JIK... says this now wins!
11/11/2019, By Bronwyn
So far it has been great at making by sheets white again and I have used it to remove stains from the toilet. I love that it doesn't have that harsh chemical smell. It comes in a plant-based packet!
01/10/2019, By karen
Versatile and safe. Add it to white linen, add a scoop to the light washing (great with sock stains), use it in the dishwasher and toilet..
no harsh or nasty smell, just pure freshness.
25/09/2019, By Bokuka
I use this on my towels. I only have white towels in my home and they get stained I don’t know how sometimes. I use this bleach on the soaking program in the washer and the results are drastic. All towels get white again and even my husband’s white T-shirts are white again and not yellow shade
19/09/2019, By Bev
Brilliant on whites but also good as a stain remover in the washing machine. Leaves a fresh, clean smell and removes stains well.
16/09/2019, By Tamarin
Use this on my whites, especially school socks and shirts.  It works really well.
13/09/2019, By Sibs
Works well, doesn't feel harsh on my hands
13/09/2019, By Vanessa
I love this product. I add a scoop to all my hand washing. Has a nice clean smell and no harsh chemicals.
02/09/2019, By Vanessa
I add a scoop to all my hand washing. Product works really well and no chemical smell.

I have been looking for a bleach that is less harmful to the environment, for a while now. Not all the eco-friendly ones bleach nicely, and I was pleasantly surprised by how well it performed.
16/07/2019, By Natalie
Works very well on white laundry. Just do not use on colour garments as you will get bleach marks
08/07/2019, By Rowena
The only bleach I use - for everything!
12/06/2019, By Stacey
Versatile and effective - use it to clean everything from the toilet to the shower floor.
11/06/2019, By Sandra
I haven't used it on my washing as such, but I use it extensively on my dishtowels and its brilliant as it doesn't t destroy the fabric like commercial bleach. I also use it to clean out glass drinking bottles, in my coffee mugs, to keep the insides white and sparkling and it is really wonderful for cleaning toilet bowls, I live remote and the water is often brown and it stains the toilet bowel and even though I know it is clean when it is stained it just looks dirty. I love this stuff and buy it regularly
05/06/2019, By Eunice
My kids white schoolshirts have always been a nightmare. This oxygen bleach works extremely well. It is easy to use. This will be a regular on my FTN order.

Clothes feel clean and fresh
08/04/2019, By michelle
I haven't needed to test the stain removing power yet, but add it to my white laundry routinely. My white clothing looks great! Will definitely keep buying this.
04/04/2019, By Ina
It took me a while to find a product effective enough to replace my go-to commercial brand. This works
31/03/2019, By Nick
Works well on clothes - looking forward to trying it on other things as well.s
07/02/2019, By Danielle
This product is amazing. My basin was badly stained and I have tried every store bought product on the market to try to get it clean, but nothing worked until I tried this.
04/02/2019, By Janice.
I love this stuff, my helper also rates this the best to clean our patio with, makes everything bright and fresh. Obviously it works wonders in the washing machine.

After trying various chemical products (...which I did not like in the first place...) I eventually tried this bleach to clean the grout of the shower floor. Didn't matter how hard I scrubbed it just never seemed to get clean. So I applied it one morning and scrubbed a bit... then I had visitors and forgot about it - later when I went to the bathroom I remembered about the shower and quickly scrubbed a bit noticing a definite difference. I decided to leave it on and every time I had a bathroom break I quickly did a bit of scrubbing. That night after everyone had left I did a final scrub and then rinsed the shower. I was amazed. It was as good as new. My husband immediately commented on the results. Other benefits include my skin not being affected by it (as with harsh chemicals), and there was no strong chemical smell. It has been 2-3 weeks now and it seems like the grout doesn't get as dirty as before. I'll re-apply every month or so just to keep it looking new.

Did not think chemical-free bleaching was possible. This works better than any other product - chemical or otherwise.
01/11/2018, By Lalli
Works wonders
26/10/2018, By Liz
I have replaced supermarket stain remover in my house with this product. It works as effectively and is better for the environment. Very happy. My helper likes it too and she is a tough customer when it comes to cleaning products.
21/10/2018, By Ina
Couldn't believe my eyes when it cleared the turmeric stains from a white plastic lid!!! Great product.
21/09/2018, By Janice
This has become a must-have in my cleaning products cupboard. Use it on toddler clothes, after dinner party stain and even make a solution with water for getting stain off our stone counter top.
18/09/2018, By Heidi
I got a sample of this and loved it so much that I had to buy a bag. Once a week I use a little bit in my ecoffee cup (that I use at work) and add boiling water. Very quickly it removes all the tea and coffee stains
29/08/2018, By Cecily
I rely on this for the dirt the four-year-old manages to grind into his clothes
13/07/2018, By Julia
Works as well as commercial bleach sans the offensive smell
09/07/2018, By Sean
It works just as well as chlorine-based bleaches although it takes a bit longer. It's worth it though since it's much safer.
25/06/2018, By Tracy
This product, it is unbelievably effective at cleaning and deoderising without harming nature. I use it on everything needing a thorough clean and works great at cleaning and refreshing smelly exercise and running gear - shoes included. Excellent for sanitising kitchen cloths, mouldy showers and smelly drains. Totally safe on fabrics of all colours. Love it!
08/03/2018, By eve
Why do we use chlorine bleach when there is a product like this? Works fantastically, does not have noxious fumes, does not take the colour out of fabrics......
I used it on bathroom curtains which had mould on them, and it removed the black mould spots. Never found a product that could do that.
01/03/2018, By Candice
Brilliant product. Could INSTANTLY see the difference on my fabrics, & I love how there isn't a strong bleach smell. Highly recommended!
18/02/2018, By Lalli
Tough on stains, gentle on the garden.
19/12/2017, By Jess
Removed sweat stains from work shirts with no issues! Amazing stuff!
30/10/2017, By Lorna
This is amazing! I wish I'd taken before and after photos when I washed our very grotty, stained oven glove. I soaked it in this oxygen bleach for a couple of hours and then washed, and it actually came out clean!
13/09/2017, By Samantha
We have a grey water system which means only green products can be used. Sometimes our whites are not as white as they could be, but no more. This product is very effective for both machine and overnight soaking.
14/07/2017, By Tara
So glad i cam across this product. Removes all stains. Safe to use on all colors does not cause any discoloring.
02/07/2017, By Cecily
I love this product for my kitchen floor and stains.
26/06/2017, By Eline
Removed old red wine stains from a white towel. Impressive.
Works better when soaking clothes / cloths overnight first.
19/06/2017, By Debbie
Amazing stuff. Use it for my dishcloths & pretty much removes any stain.
15/06/2017, By Kirsten
Works well on my white sheets.
