Perfectly white clothes and sheets is what we all want. But, with time, the white color of the fabrics becomes yellow or pale gray, which is very irritating.
If you are looking for the perfect method to return the whiteness of the clothes and make them look fresh and new again, we have the perfect solution for you.
No, it`s not synthetic bleach, it can only destroy the fabric and make things worse. Here we will suggest natural bleach that will surprise you with the results. It contains potassium permanganate, which is the best choice when it comes to laundry whitening.
For this natural bleaching method, you should follow these steps:
Dilute couple of crystals in 10 liters of water. You will get a pink solution. Stir in 200 grams of the regular detergent you are using. Don`t put a lot of potassium permanganate because it won`t change the effectiveness. Soak your white laundry in the solution and cover them with a nylon bag. Let the solution act for 4-5 hours, or leave them in overnight.
In the morning, put the laundry in the machine and wash them as you always do. Or you can reverse the process- first wash the laundry in the machine, then leave them soak in the solution.
After they`ve been washed, rinse and hang them to dry. If you are not satisfied with the results, repeat the procedure one more time, or until you are completely satisfied.
Also, you can use baking soda for this purpose- it is very effective, plus it`s cheap and affordable. Mix 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda with your usual detergent. This will soften the water and improve the detergent`s power. Also, you can add baking soda in the compartment for the detergent before washing the laundry.
Try any of these methods and you will make your white clothes as new, once again.
