Warning: Clorox Bleach with CLOROMAX will damage your stainless steel washing machine

https://www.clorox.com/products/clorox- ... ng-bleach/

So I used Clorox Bleach with CLOROMAX, and immediately I saw rust and tarnish damage inside my washing machine. My machine has a stainless steel drum. So beware! This product will damage stainless steel with rust and tarnish.

What is CLOROMAX?

It is new patented technology of polymers that:
• Helps reduce soil adhesion to surfaces and provides a quicker and easier clean
• Improves performance between Clorox® Disinfecting Bleach and detergents to deliver brighter and longer-lasting whites than before

Any pics?
I've been using this specific bleach with cloromax to disinfect the previous owner's washing machine.
I ran 3 full cycles in the past month and my stainless steel drum looks like chrome.

We clean our washer with bleach at least once a month. Sometimes it's generic bleach, but the last few months it's been Clorox because that's what was on the store shelves last time I ran out.

We've seen no issues.

Mayhap it be instead, that you have a washing machine with a particularly low quality of manufacture and steel alloy.
As someone long prepared for the occasion, in full command of every plan you wrecked---
