Are your white clothes turning yellow? Check out these simple tricks to maintain their whiteness!

White clothes have an undeniable charm to them. But they are heavily prone to stains and yellowing.

Hard water only makes it more difficult to maintain whites. The chemical present in the water reacts with the detergent and ends up fading the white to yellow.

  • Bleach
    Add 1/4th cup of bleach in half a bucket of warm water. Soak your whites in it for 10 minutes. Always wear rubber gloves while dealing with bleach. Rinse, wash and repeat if necessary.
  • Ammonia
    Add 1 cup of ammonia and 1 cup Vim dishwash liquid in a bucket and mix it with a toothbrush. Soak the stained portion in it for 30 minutes. Scrub the garment with the same toothbrush and rinse it in water.
  •  Peroxide
    Add 1 part of water and 1 part of Hydrogen peroxide (depending on the size of the garment). Soak the garment in it for 30 minutes and then rinse it. Rewash and repeat if needed.

Top Tip

Always use warm water to wash whites.
