The best laundry whitenerJune 14, 2014
Do you have any laundry that’s supposed to be white but is instead yellow or gray or off-white or another non-white color? We did! Until we found “The Best Laundry Whitener”!
After doing some research online, I’ve come up with a wonderful recipe for really whitening and brightening those whites! This works better than any other method I’ve tried. And I’ve tried a lot of them!
If you want to really take the stains out of those white clothing items, or the yellow/gray tones out of those white bedding pieces, or just make any white clothing item as white and bright as possible, then I implore you to try this recipe!
The best laundry whitener
- HOT water
- 1 cup of liquid laundry detergent
- 1 cup powdered dishwasher detergent
- 1 cup bleach
Simply throw all these ingredients into the washing machine and make sure they all dissolve. I used the hot water setting on the machine and then also poured in a large pitcher of boiling water to raise the temperature of the solution a little more. After the mixture is homogeneous, throw in the clothes and let soak for a few hours. I left mine in the machine to soak for 4 hours. Then wash as usual.
The results are wonderful. Like new! This is my favorite laundry hack ever!
