Does non chlorine bleach really work? If I put white socks in the washer and
let them soak with non chlorine bleach will they turn out whiter than white?
I assume I can't use chlorine bleach as it will damage the elastic. Thanks!

Of course non-chlorine bleach works. Bleaching products (as well as
UV rays from the sun) will weaken fabric to some degree. It all
depends on the concentration of the bleaching product, temperature and
duration. I probably would not soak fabrics in any bleaching
product. You can use chlorine bleach with white cotton fabrics, but
again, the wash should be agitating when adding bleach. Sometimes
just a 1/4 cup of bleach will brighten whites with a lower risk of
fabric damage and at a fraction of the cost of non-chlorine products.
