However, there are 5 easy tips that you can follow to make white clothes whiter. Check out a few easy steps and learn how to brighten white clothes.
How to keep your white clothes white
1…. Separate your white clothes from dark ones
I know, I am stating the obvious number 1 tip to keep your whites white. And you probably know that even if the color doesn’t really change, white items can appear dingier after coming into contact with darker colored clothes.
2… Pre-treat any stains
Pre-treating stains on clothes before you wash them will ensure that the stain is removed and isn’t “set” by the washing process. You can even use a bit of your normal liquid laundry detergent and scrub the stain away using a new toothbrush.
3… Wash white clothes with vinegar!
This is old fashioned recipe that works in more than one ways. Use white vinegar to clean your washing machine first. Running the washing machine empty on the hottest wash once a month with some vinegar to keep it clean. For your white clothes slosh in half-a-cup of white wine vinegar (not brown) and washing powder. Whites will come out much cleaner. By the way this is a great trick to get rid of the mouldy smell sometimes towels have.
4… Get sparkling- white with dishwasher tablets
I do use dish washing liquid for oil stains on clothes but dishwasher tablets can be used too for significantly whiter clothes. Dishwasher powder contains oxidising agents, which removes the colour of the stains.
5… Kitchen Cleaner?! Yes, but not for delicate clothes.
Spraying laundry with Mr Muscle Kitchen Cleaner, leaving for ten to 15 minutes and then washing at 50 degrees can work miracles. Careful this tip is not for delicate clothes but works with socks and towels.
