Every housewife dreams of perfectly white clothes and sheets. Unfortunately, the color of white fabrics quickly becomes pale gray or yellow over time, which can be irritating, and even uncomfortable for the people who wear the clothes.
Therefore, if you are wondering if there is some method to restore the white color of the white clothes, as well as their freshness, we can provide the answer. Don’t even think about synthetic bleach, as we will disappoint you. These products worsen things and thin out clothes.
Yet, there are some methods that will help you solve this issue. We will suggest a natural bleach that will provide even better effects than expected.
When it comes to laundry whitening, potassium permanganate is a must!
All you need to do is the following:
Add a few crystals to 10 liters of water in order to get a pink solution, and stir 200 grams of your regular detergent in it. You should not add more potassium permanganate as this will not improve the effect. Then, soak the white laundry in the solution, and use a nylon bag to cover them. Leave the clothes thus for at least 4-5 hours, or for best effects, overnight.
Afterward, transfer the laundry to the laundry machine, and wash them as usually.
Furthermore, you can do things in the opposite way, you can initially wash the clothes, and then leave them in the solution to soak.
Next, rinse them and hang them. If needed, you can repeat the entire procedure once more, until you are completely satisfied with the result.
Note that you can also use baking soda to whiten your clothes. It is inexpensive, affordable, and extremely effective as well.
You should mix 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda with the detergent you usually use. This will lower the hardness of the water, and it will also boost the power of the detergent. You can add some baking powder to the compartment where you add the detergent, and wash the laundry.
This will provide magnificent effects, and you will be pleased with the results! Your clothes will be white and fresh again!
