Want To Keep Those Whites Bright?
We love an essential white tee. Layered, tucked in or tied up, the humble white tee is your ultimate wardrobe chameleon. We do however want them to last, look fresh, soft and white; so, it’s good to know that chlorine bleach is not the only option. Try some of these potentially less damaging products (you probably already own them) before and during your wash.
3 EASY WAYS TO WHITEN YOUR WHITES
Baking soda. Baking soda whitens, softens, and freshens fabrics. Add ½ cup of baking soda along with your regular laundry detergent.
Distilled white vinegar. Vinegar whitens, softens, and freshens fabrics. Add ½ to 1 cup of distilled white vinegar along with your regular laundry detergent. Don't worry about the vinegar scent- it will disappear after drying.
Lemon juice. Lemon juice brightens and freshens fabrics. Add ¼ - ½ cup of lemon juice along with your regular laundry detergent.
Line-dry white clothes in bright sunlight for extra bleaching power.
Whether your stains are from sweat or spills, a little elbow grease is your best friend when it comes to removing them without bleach. Remember to wash stained clothing in cold water, as hot water can set the stain. If the stain is still there after washing, avoid the dryer and repeat the stain removal process and wash again.
