Ways to Keep Your White Shirt Sparkling White

It can be tough keeping a brand new white shirt’s vibrancy and stainlessness after a couple of weeks of wear. However, these tips may help you have more success in making sure your white clothes stay that way.

  1. Make sure your white fabrics and darker fabrics are separated before going into the wash. If these are placed into a washer together, it could very likely result in color transfer or bleeding dye, coloring your white fabric, or simply causing it to look unclean.
  2. Wash your white clothes in hot water, and make sure to use plenty of soap or detergent to wash away all the dirt. You may also want to add a whitener into the wash, such as lemon juice, vinegar, or hydrogen peroxide.
  3. When it comes to fabric that has been yellowed with time, rinse in a little vinegar and water, and hang it someplace bright and warm to dry.
  4. Pre-treat the stains on your clothes with normal soap or laundry detergent. Scrub the stain away thoroughly, before soaking in hot water.
  5. Make sure that the clothes have been completely rinsed, in a clean washing machine, so that dirt in the machine is not being transferred onto the fabric. If nothing else works, add some bleach to your load, in an appropriate amount.
