Does Arm and Hammer Laundry Detergent kill 99.9% of bacteria?
No, only bleach and ammonia will kill 99.99% of bacteria.
I always check the box or container to see what it does. If what you are looking for is not there, it doesn't do it.
I had a microbiology professer that told us about a mouthwash's bacteria-killing TV claims. Ads boasted 99.9% of bacteria was killed.
He delved into it, and it was not quite so simple! I forget the exact numbers, but one had to hold the mouthwash in the mouth for something like 19 hours for it to kill 99.9% of the bacteria!
No, by itself no laundry detergent will kill that much bacteria. Very hot water kills bacteria, but clorox is better at it. I dont think ammonia kills as much bacteria as clorox, but that only my opinion. Its been a long time since I took chemistry. (lol)
Dont forget that its chlorine that is put into your drinking water to kill bacteria in tap water.
Best of luck
