With the warmer weather and styles lightening up with summertime whites, you may notice that what was once a bright white shirt or pant is now dull and drab in color. Before giving up on that great article of clothing, try these tricks to restore your whites to their original condition.
- Go natural. Use baking soda for a gentle and cost-effective way to brighten your whites. Start your laundry as usual, and then add in half a cup of baking soda during the pre-wash cycle. This natural stain lifter will help keep whites clean and fresh.
- Keep it cold. Stains have a higher chance of setting in when the fabric gets hot, so wash in cold and avoid the dryer.
- For pesky stains, try vinegar. Saturate the affected area and allow it to soak in. Then, simply wash it with the rest of your whites to get rid of that unsightly spot.
Any other tips for keeping your whites white?
