Tip of the Week – Whites Whiter than White

By | April 5, 2010

Whites Whiter than WhiteThere’s nothing better then a bright white t-shirt, but often your white laundry items can start to look dingy and gray. This happens for a few reasons. You may live in a hard water area and deposits become fixed to the fibers, or it could just be a build up of detergent within the item. To get those whites white again & keep them white use a little vinegar.

Get White Again: Soak the dingy item in a gallon of warm water and 8fl oz of white vinegar. Then rinse in cold water & wash as usual.

To Keep White: Add about 1/3 cup of white vinegar to your rinse cycle. You’ll find that your clothes come out brighter and softer, and any vinegar smells should vanish after your clothes have dried.

Easy & eco-friendly…now that’s my kind of laundry.
