Washing Tips for White Clothes: How to Keep Clothes White and Bright After Holi

Holi festival can take its toll on your white clothes. Find out how to remove stains from white clothes with the tricks and techniques below.

First things first- before you learn how to get rid of Holi stains on white clothes, you need to organise and separate your Holi clothes basis colours. It’s not totally necessary, but it does provide some extra insurance to get your clothes back to their naturally bright or white state. 

  1. Before you remove stains from white clothes, make sure your stained clothing does not require dry cleaning or special treatment. It is better to be safe than sorry when it comes to taking care of clothing that recommends professional cleaning.
  2. Before putting the clothes into your washing machine, pre-treat your clothes. Pre-treatment can be done in two ways: spot treatment or soaking. Remember, patience is the key while removing colour stains. You may need to repeat this process a couple of times before you wash the clothes as usual.
  3. If you choose to spot treat, simply wet the stain, sprinkle in ½ spoon of Rin detergent powder or use ½ spoon of Rin Ala for white clothes and gently rub; then allow it to soak in for 10-15 minutes. Then, use a soft, bristled brush to work in the paste for tougher stains, but the best way to avoid extra work is to treat the stains while they’re fresh.
  4. If you think soaking is the best option, mix a dose of detergent into a bucket of water and soak your stained clothes for about half an hour. Once you have removed the clothes, dispose of this water.
  5. Once you have finished your special post-Holi, pre-treatment, you can begin the process of washing! Whether by hand or by machine-wash, Rin is a product that will not only fit in well with your preferred technique, but also will keep clothes bright like new. 

These techniques will surely work well for your stained clothes after the festival of Holi!

Key Steps

  1. The best way to remove stains from white clothes is to pre-treat them or soak them in a bucket of soapy water for about 30 minutes.
  2. Don’t use too much detergent, ½ spoon of Rin detergent can do the job! 
  3. Wash colours separately: if red or pink was the colour of the day, don’t mix those clothes in with yellow or blue. That way, you have the best chance of clean, bright clothes.

Top Tip

Holi coloured powders are easy to get out of clothes when you use the right detergent. Pre-treat any tough stains with Rin, and ensure you follow the directions on the label of your favourite detergent!
