NO no no! Bleach is drying and caustic to skin. READ the label!
My husband has palominos - one with an absolutely gorgeous thick, long tail.
We use a variety -
Fiebings Blue Frost
Xtreme Show white
I try and wash her tail once a week during show season to stay ahead of any stains. The night before an event, I braid and bag it too.
For the initial clean, wash the tail with any shampoo first and let it sit a bit, then I use kitchen pot scrubbers - with the sponge in the center - to scrub the tail. Rinse, scrub any really bad areas. Then use a bluing shampoo, scrub again (be use to rinse the scrubbers in between shampoos). Rinse, condition, dry.
