Deck Wash – Remove mould & mildew on wooden decks the environmentally friendly way! No toxic fumes or special equipment is necessary. Add ¼-1/3 of a bag of safe bleach to about 2 liters of hot tap water. Brush onto deck & scrub lightly. Let dry (repeat if necessary) and rinse off with clean water. This product is plant and lawn friendly. P.S. With a little scrubbing, it also worked great on the wooden slats on the patio bench; Safe Bleach got rid of the dull grey and brought back the original honey oak colour. click here

Stain Remover – Gloria from Lindsay, Ontario – “Wow! My daughter (16 years old) dyed her hair purple and then went to watch a football game in the rain. Her hair ‘bled’ onto a white puffy vest with black lining. Soap Works saved the day with their safe bleach. I put the vest in the washer to soak with 3 tsp. of safe bleach and warm water. An hour later, it came out perfect! The white was white and the black wasn’t faded at all. Thanks.” (We had to tell you this one!)
Pet Stains - Works especially well on organic stains. Mix some safe bleach, mild soap and hot water in a cup. Test on a hidden corner for colour fastness of surface being treated. If OK, drizzle safe bleach and hot water solution over stain. After a few minutes, blot with clear water and dab up excess water gently with a towel. Repeat if necessary.

Remember: Always use the hot tap water (do not use boiling water) and a little mild soap with Safe Bleach. As the Safe Bleach and water cools, the cleaning power slows. After 30-45 minutes the solution neutralises.
