Do you dread cleaning grout, sinks, tubs/showers, and  white laundry items because of the smell of bleach? 

Cleaning anything with bleach presents loads of risks to your health. From headaches to asthma attacks, you can’t deny that the fumes alone are overwhelmingly inescapable.

Luckily, now there’s a safer, non-toxic, and less smelly way to sterilize your home.

Why Is It Bad To Use Bleach? 


We all want to have a clean house and laundry, but we shouldn’t have to use smelly, toxic, and dangerous chemicals to accomplish that goal. Yes, bleach works, but at what cost to your body and your families bodies?  Just how dangerous is bleach?  What is in it anyway?

Bleach contains Sodium hypochlorite which is a caustic chemical that is not only toxic, but can create a VERY dangerous gas when mixed with some other cleaners, especially those containing ammonia. Mixing bleach and ammonia creates Phosgene gas, which is Mustard Gas, in your house! If not used in a ventilated area you can experience bleach poisoning and even death. 

Side Effects of Using Bleach:

  • Burning of eyes
  • Causing burns in lining of throat
  • Asthma attack/Difficulty Breathing
  • Blistering/ Redness if it comes in contact with skin
  • Throat swelling
  • Stomach/Abdominal pain
  • Drooling
  • Shock
  • Bleach poisoning
  • Coma
  • Death

In addition to ammonia, bleach reacts with many other cleaners. Bleach should NOT be mixed or used with other cleaners!

What Should I Be On The Lookout For In Other Products? 

Acid Products

Acidic products include vinegar and some glass and window cleaners, automatic dishwasher detergents and rinses, toilet bowl cleaners, drain cleaners, rust removal products, and brick and concrete cleaners. 

Bleach also reacts with some oven cleaners, hydrogen peroxide, and some insecticides. Pool chemicals frequently contain calcium hypochlorite or sodium hypochlorite and should not be mixed with other cleaning products.

 A Non-Toxic Bleach Alternative That Really Works!

Now that you are ready to skip grabbing that big white bottle on the shelf, you are probably wondering, “ Are there effective, Non-Toxic alternatives that work?”

YES!!! The BEST alternative is here in all its effective, non-toxic glory– OxyBoost!

Oxyboost is a SAFE, Non-Toxic, Color Safe, Bleach Alternative that brightens, whitens, and helps lift stains and odors from fabrics and surfaces.  It is made of Sodium Percorbaonate and Sodium Carbonate which work together for amazing results without any toxicity.

What Makes Oxyboost Different?

Lots of companies that manufacture bleach alternative cleaners use various surfactants, buffers, and fillers to boost the effectiveness of their product.

Commonly you will see little blue “beads” in their formula or notice the product itself has a blue color.

With OxyBoost, there are no tricks needed. Only real, pure, powerful plant-based ingredients. 

Blue is a dirty little trick and here’s why:

  • Those little blue beads are actually ultraviolet light boosted brighteners and dyes.  They trick our eyes (in indoor lighting) into believing things are brighter and more vibrant than they actually are!
  • In the process of using those beads, they are leaving a film of toxic chemicals behind that stay in the clothes you wear all day
  • Most companies don’t list the exact chemical compounds used and hide them under various names like “patented formulas.”

What makes Oxyboost Safe?

  • Once the sodium percarbonate gives off all of its oxygen, it’s a completely inert product. Meaning it is essentially basic table salt going down your drain and not any chemicals.
  • No dyes that damage the environment
  • No micro plastic beads to contaminate water supply
  • No added toxic surfactants, buffers, or fillers
  • The concentration and purity achieved in the formula is unmatched in the  
  • All ingredients are listed on the label and not hidden
  • O2 bubbles lift the stain using the power of nature to truly brighten your clothes—not dye them.

Where Do You Use Oxyboost?

  • Toilet Bowls
  • Sinks
  • Grout
  • Tub/Shower
  • Clean coffee/tea stains from cups
  • Laundry 
  • Hot tub sanitizer

Oxyboost has oxygenated power to clean and lift stains from clothes and surfaces, leaving them bright, clean, and good as new!  And best of all it does it WITHOUT toxic chemicals. It is safe for you and your family!

Oxyboost works best in Hot/Warm water.  However, it can be used in cold water.

We recommend the extra rinse to prevent fading on dark clothes, when washed in cold.
