I know this post is really old, but I know the answer to your question. The reason white clothes have a "no chlorine bleach" tag is because the clothes are dyed white now, so that they are super white. I found this out when I used bleach on some white underwear (for no particular reason, other than that it was a load of whites, and that's what you're supposed to do, right?), and they came out that dingy gray color you used to see on clothes that NEEDED to be bleached.

Naomi, thank you so much for writing. The question about beach and whites has bugged me for a long time, so I'm very happy to have an answer -- and a reason to follow the directions on those tags!
