How to Brighten Your Whites

Do your whites keep fading? Don’t use the bleach, use this easy tip to brighten them quick: When you’re doing laundry, add 1/4 cup of lemon juice to your cycle to immediately brighten your whites #LaundryTricks

How to get your dirty whites clean again... HOT HOT HOT water, 1 cap of laundry detergent, 1 cup dish washer detergent, 1 cup bleach, 1/2 cup borax. Tell you what, you have to rewash it once to put softener in but it's the whitest you'll ever see your whites. If you omit the bleach it works great to get stains out of colors too (baby spit up is no longer a stain on OLD clothes)

How to Brighten Whites and Remove Stains Naturally

To keep whites white Baking soda, vinegar, borax, lemon juice and hydrogen peroxide all naturally whiten. Add ½ cup of any of these cleaners to each wash cycle to keep your clothes bone white. For double duty, mix in ½ cup vinegar and ½ cup borax to your white loads. Both ingredients will help brighten whites, and the vinegar will soften clothes.

Another pinner said: The right way to bleach your whites. I am so happy I found this! I had two Downeast wonder tees that were about to go in the garbage. I used this technique and they look brand new again! Yeah!

Miracle Laundry Whitening Solution {Best Of Jillee}

1 cup of laundry detergent 1 cup powdered dish washer detergent 1 cup bleach 1/2 cup borax After filling the washing machine with HOT water….

My grandma taught me this many years ago. Refreshing towels I use this trick all the time since I noticed my towels smelling funky. It works! - Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelly. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and 1cup vinegar, then a 2nd time with hot water and half cup baking soda. This strips the residue and leaves them fresh and able to absorb more water again. Works like a charm!

Easily De-Funk Your Bath Towels

I don't have any yet but ... Wash your towels in hot water with a cup of vinegar, and then run again in hot water with a half-cup of baking soda. That will strip your towels from all of that residue and mildew smell and will actually leave them feeling fluffy and smelling fresh. (Do not add laundry detergent to either wash. Just once with vinegar and once with baking soda.) good to know for the future.
