Have you ever seen someone wearing a crisp white shirt or glimmering pair of white pants and wondered how it never faded? Well, we know the secret and you could have all your faded out white clothes looking like new too!
So, here you go and make sure that these tips are kept top secret!
SEPARATE YOUR COLORS
Before washing your clothes, the first thing you need to do is separate your laundry based on their colours. All white pieces of garments should be soaked separably from the coloured ones. Even light colors like pink or blue can transfer onto whites, so making up a separate pile for clothes that are white only, is mandatory.
If you notice any stains on your clothes in particular, then scrub the stain before you wash them. This will make sure that the stain is removed completely. You can use a bit of your regular liquid laundry detergent and gently scrub the stain away using an old toothbrush or cloth.
USE BAKING SODA
Use baking soda to soak your pile of whites instead of using the normal washing power and soak it overnight. Baking soda is very similar to washing powder but has a lower pH level. Thereby causing lesser damage to the fabric. Soaking in warm water would help bring out better results.
SOAK YOUR CLOTHES IN LEMON JUICE
If you do not want to use harsh chemicals on your white clothes, then nothing works better than a few ounces of lime juice. All you have to do is mix 125 ml of lemon juice in 8 litres of warm water and add this mixture to a bucket of soaked clothes. After a couple of hours you can wash them they usual way.
USE HYDROGEN PEROXIDE
Hydrogen peroxide will whiten the yellowed white clothes, remove the stains and disinfect them. Pour it directly on the stain or else add a cup of it to the pile in the washing machine to brighten them.
DRY YOUR CLOTHES WELL
After washing, make sure you have the perfect weather conditions to dry your clothes. Rinse clothes properly and hang them out to dry in the bright sunlight. This helps remove all odors and smells in a natural way.
So, go ahead and make everyone jealous of how white your white clothes really are and we hope these tips were of good use to you. Let us know what you think in the comments below. Happy washing everyone!
