How To Wash and Whiten Yellowed Pillows

How To Wash & Whiten Yellowed Pillows - One Good Thing by Jillee
  • The Gypsy Priestess

    I have long wondered why my mans pillow always turns yellow after a while and mine do not? ......

    I am trying this tonight!

  • Julie Sawyer

    1 cup of bleach is harsh and can eat away the fabric. Clorox 2 might be a better alternative.

  • Rhea

    Good to know, thanks!

  • Roshelle Dewey

    I have done this before and it does wash well but my pillows never seem to dry all the way. I have put them on a full dry cycle and even set them in the sun after but they are still pretty damp. (I have a new dryer and it works just fine drying everything else)

kill mold!!!Mix 1 teaspoon of tea tree oil per 1 cup of water. Spray onto the surface with mold and allow to dry, do not rinse. This will kill the mold spores without creating harsh chemical fumes as other cleaners, such as bleach, would.

The best-kept silver cleaning secret. Must remember this for next time!

The Best-Kept Silver Cleaning Secret Ever!

Lemons can help whiten. White damask napkins, linens, and even socks can be whitened on the stove: Fill a pot with water and a few slices of fresh lemon; bring the water to a boil. Turn off heat, add linens, and let soak for up to an hour; launder as usual. For extra brightening, spread them out in the sunlight to dry. Read more at Home Repairs – Martha Stewart

    I love this post- I know it works- But I giggle thinking about my husband coming home and lifting the lid and seeing socks/underwear cooking on the stove... lol!

Remove yellow underarm stains.... Mix hydrogen peroxide and baking soda. Apply to stains, let soak for 30 minutes and wash like normal.

Powdered oxygen bleach, a scrub brush and some water are all you need to make tile and grout look like new.

    This works great! A little elbow grease is required at first, but with regular mopping using oxygen bleach (i.e. oxiclean) your grout stays looking like new! I can't stop looking at my kitchen floor, it looks like new!

Fill a spray bottle with hydrogen peroxide and 1/2 handful of baking soda. Shake it up and spray on carpet stains, upholstery stains, and clothing stains. pinner said, "I've used it for years and it works better than anything else."

  • Cynthia Gallegos

    Those are the same ingredients that you would use to bath your pets in if they are sprayed by a skunk! Except you would put Dawn dishwashing liquid in it too. Just a helpful tip.

  • Susannah Duelfer

    That is a lavette bottle.

  • Kathy Tenney

    How about using a funnel

  • Elizabeth Hatchett

    Make sure you put it in plastic. When I was nine I exploded a glass bottle with that formula.

  • Lucy Bentley

    I am looking for some of those bottles for my shout recipe and other recipes. Thank you.
