I have used vinegar, not bleach only because I don't have any clothes that I don't care about getting bleach stains on if I accidentally miss, but I was told by several people actually to use dawn dish soap, since it is an anti bacterial soap, and scrub the undersides of the hoof with it, and it helps kill off thrush. Now I was cautioned that it only works on the beginning stages of thrush, but if the thrush is really bad, it won't kill enough of the bacteria. It's a relatively cost effective way to combat thrush, and easy to use. Just get a hoof pick with a brush on the back side, and put a bit of dawn on the hoof, and use the brush to scrub it in, make sure that it gets into the frog, and all the cracks and crevices, as well as around the edge of the hoof.
