Our home has a septic system. My husband had the system cleaned a while back and the individual convinced my husband that the "bacteria" was low and he had to add a product to return the septic to healthy functioning. Of course $. He also told him to never use any bleach products as that would kill off all the bacteria.
I rarely use bleach in my laundry - but occasionally I need to.
I say that man was full of bunk! How much bacteria can a little bleach kill off when you have folks filling that septic tank with bacteria day in and day out.
What is the real deal with bleach in laundry use?
