miracle-whitening-"Turning dirty, dingy, grimy and stained into white, bright, fresh and clean. Yep, I find that very appealing. :-)"
How to get your dirty whites clean again... HOT HOT HOT water, 1 cap of laundry detergent, 1 cup powdered dish washer detergent, 1 cup bleach, 1/2 cup borax. 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)
Bleaching is so far my only stain removal method, but even that doesn't always work. Maybe because I've been doing it wrong all this time. This process uses a water soak, bleach, and dishwasher detergent. Photo and tutorial via The Hildebrands www.babble.com/...
