The answer is yes you may use bleach every day, although you may not know exactly how much you use.
Dishwashing detergents use chlorine bleach, benzoyl peroxide, or perborate in the liquid, gel, or powder formulas. In addition, toothpaste and tooth whitening aids use hydrogen peroxide to clean and brighten your smile. Also, acne preparations often have benzoyl peroxide, and hair colorings might contain hydrogen peroxide to do their work!
Finally, sink cleansers, mildew removers, laundry stain removers, and brightening detergents will frequently have one of the three most common bleaches as a component.
Remember that bleaches include hydrogen peroxide, sodium perborate, sodium percarbonate, and chlorine. Whenever a label says it will whiten, brighten, or disinfect, bleach may be part of the product. And, concentrated amounts of bleach can cause a color change! So handle these products with care especially around your clothes.
