The February issue of CM/Cleanfax® magazine is now available online, featuring Scott Warrington''s feature Oxidizers and reducers.
Warrington states that bleaches fall into two categories: Oxidizers and reducers.
He notes that when oxidizers and reducers react with a molecule, it can be changed to something that allows light to pass through unaltered.
Warrington adds that, in simple terms, reducers remove oxygen from a molecule while oxidizers add oxygen. This change makes the stain colorless.
One rule of thumb, according to Warrington, is to use reducers on any colored stain caused by something you would eat or drink; mustard being the one exception. Use oxidizers on other colored stains.
Scott Warrington has more than 40 years of experience in the carpet cleaning industry and related fields. He serves as the technical support specialist for Bridgepoint Systems and Interlink Supply. He can be contacted at
