What Causes Sheets to Become Dull

Linen and white clothing are notorious for how easily they can become stained, dull, and turn yellow. There are several factors that can cause your sheets to fade and become yellow, including poor-quality washing detergents and poor washing techniques.

Washing your white sheets with other colours can result in the brightness of your sheets fading or the colours of the other items bleeding into your white linen and staining them. Leaving you with linen that’s lost its brilliant brightness.

While most people may know that the accumulation of sweat and dirt can result in your sheets becoming dull and yellow, a less commonly known cause of faded sheets is the washing detergents you use. Certain washing detergent ingredients react with sweat and other chemicals in white linen and cause them to become yellow.

The best way to transform dull and yellowing linen to brilliantly bright and wonderfully white again is by using a detergent for white sheets. Certain detergents like Surf’s washing powder are formulated with ingredients that brighten and restore white linen. For spotlessly clean and bright white linen, trust Surf Washing Powder.
