A powerful cleaning booster, OxiClean serves as a way to brighten whites, remove stains and do so without fading colored clothing when used as a laundry soap. You can also use OxiClean to clean other parts of your home. For example, OxiClean can be used as a dishwasher soap, as it offers oxygenated cleaning power to the already powerful steam and heat cleaning powers of a dishwasher. Using OxiClean as a dishwasher soap isn't a complicated endeavor, and it aids in getting your dishes sparkling clean when used in conjunction with your normal dishwasher soap.
