The biggest mistake you can make when laundering your clothes is to mix white and colourful clothes together which often causes pink or grey laundry. How to restore the original colour of your white clothes? You may say bleach, I say no! Bleach may whiten your clothes, but it damages the fabric of clothes at the same time. Believe it or not, cleaning white clothes without using bleach is possible. What’s more, all you need to use are a few natural products. Here are three different natural cleaning methods for white clothes.
1. Allow your clothes to soak in a basin of hot water and lemon slices for one or two hours. Then wash as usual. If hot water and lemon slices can’t deal with the stains, boil the water, switch off the heat and soak your clothes in it. Add several lemon slices and let sit overnight.
2. For deep cleaning white clothes you can use white vinegar. Just pour ½ – 1 cup of white vinegar into the wash with detergent. Vinegar will not only whiten your clothes, but it will also remove all soap or detergent residue. In addition, the fabric of your white clothes will be softer than ever.
3. Sunlight can also help you brighten whites.
Cleaning white clothes without using bleach is still unpopular around most people, but more and more companies that provide house cleaning services advise us to look for natural solutions instead of using commercial cleaning products that can irritate our skin and eyes as bleach does.
