Expert Answer:

Due to the oxidizing action of ozone, it acts as a mild bleaching agent as well as a sterilizing agent. It acts as a bleaching agent for vegetable coloring matter.
 
     Vegetable colouring matter + O3 —> Oxidised coloured matter + O2
                                                                              (Colourless)
 
For example, ozone bleaches indigo, ivory, litmus, delicate fabrics etc.
