Can bleach anytime: even after the cream has dried on your face it can bleach colored items. That is why it is best applied at night.

Benzaclin (clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide): The benzoyl peroxide in benzaclin (clindamycin and benzoyl peroxide) can cause discoloration or bleaching of clothes, hair, pillow cases, and towels when it is either wet or dry. It is also important to wash your hands well before touching these and similar items after using benzoyl peroxide.
