Bleaches In general, all bleaches are oxidizing agents, which are used to whiten and brighten fabrics and assist in the removal of challenging stains. Some types of fabric stains are bound so tightly in place that they cannot be easily dissolved and must be destroyed instead. The colors of such difficult stains are often associated with weakly bound electrons, such as those involved in double bonds between atoms. Double bonds can give organic molecules their colors, and groups of atoms that give rise to color in molecules are called chromophores.

Eccrine glands are distributed throughout most of the skin and are highly concentrated on the palms, soles, forehead, face, and axillae (armpits). , sodium, potassium, and chloride), lactic acid, ascorbic acid, amino acids, urea, uric acid, ammonia, and glucose. This secretion tends to have no odor, and the body may be generally cooled after the evaporation of skin surface water from the eccrine-based sweat. , Staphylococcus species) may act on perspiration residue and sebum (natural body oil) to produce unpleasant odiferous products such as short-chain fatty acids and amines.
