The Household Staple That Will Help Get Bleach Smells Out Of Clothing
Vinegar is a natural deodorizer that can eliminate the smell of bleach from your clothes, because its acetic acid molecules neutralize the alkaline odor of bleach.
To prevent bleach’s scent from permeating other pieces of clothing, immediately put your washed laundry back in the washing machine, and grab a bottle of distilled white vinegar.
Not only is distilled white vinegar cheaper than its counterparts, but its lack of tannins makes it suitable for laundry since it won't discolor your fabrics.
Add ½ cup of vinegar to the machine's fabric softener drawer compartment. If your machine doesn't have one, simply bring it to a stop before the rinse cycle to add the vinegar.
Let this sit for 10 minutes, then rinse your clothing as normal. Pop your clean laundry in the dryer to get rid of any remaining smells of vinegar.
