According to consumer reviews from Amazon.com, Oxiclean stain remover functions exactly as advertised. When given an eight-hour soak in Oxiclean, even the most stubborn stains are removed.
More stubborn contaminants like mold and mildew can be removed with an extended soak of up to 48 hours. Furthermore, Oxiclean can be used to combat color run if the affected clothing is treated right away. Oxiclean has, in rare instances, been said to reduce the vividness of certain bright colors such as neon green, hot pink and yellow. Oxiclean contains bleach and should not be used on clothing that bleach would damage.
