OxiClean is a safe alternative to chemical-based bleach products, as the item is comprised of oxygen bleach that uses oxygen ions to fuel its cleaning power. When cleaning your outdoor deck, the oxygen bleach is a much better alternative than chlorine bleach as it cleans any deck surface without causing discolouration or damage to plants, shrubs, soil and similar surroundings.
