My “Miracle” Laundry Whitening Solution

Home Hacks, Cleaning Tips, Recipes & DIY

Dingy whites happen to be one of my biggest pet peeves! I have spent WAY too much of my life trying to figure out how to get whites back to their original “whiteness”, and this solution turned out to be the answer I was looking for. Give it a try, you’ll be amazed at what a difference it makes!

Will this work when u wash ur white clothes with a red shirt my 80 dollar hoodie turned pink

Sn00py says:

Interesting with the dishwasher detergent… I use a tablet to clean my washer and for a fraction it works better than ahhh-fresh

Three Percent Man says:

What if you have a little piece of colored fabric on a white shirt? Can I still use this?

James Fogg says:

Automatic dishwashing detergents contain sodium hypochlorite (Bleach), even if they’re powdered. If anyone is thinking of skipping the liquid bleach to use this on colors you’ll still have bleach in the mix from the dishwashing detergents and will probably cause colors to run.

CitizenOWorld says:

Thank you, Jillee! Do you think gel dishwasher soap could be substituted for the powder?

Won’t that bleach “eat” (degrade) the fibers… and thus your whites wear out faster? Heck, if you soak your whites in bleach a 50/50 solution, it’ll be white-white, but will have holes after a few washings.

Pasa Dena says:

baking soda and vinegar is easier and works great 😉 ..if u dont have all these ingridients

Kronos0415 says:

She lost me at bleach. Your just mixing chemicals now. Makes it white, while destroying the fibers.

Hi! I have a black and white bathing suit that I absolutely love. But the white parts have turned kind of dingy and yellowed. Any recommendations for making the white parts white again without ruining the black parts?

Where r the results

Todd bob says:

In today’s world they say DONT use Chlorine bleach as it will just yellow your whites….tide has a great pod that desolves and the bluing bottle for whites is also amazing.   NEVER put regular soap in your washing machine.

Hell55 Drake says:

My wife tried using this on her stained underwear, there white 100 percent cotton, the kind old ladies wear, it didn’t work. she was going to throw them out but I convince her to give me a chance, I soak them for 24 hours in turpentine, it worked great but now I’m having problems getting the smell out, HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

Megazone Music says:

No vinegar in your recipe?
Can you add vinegar to the rinse cycle for an added brightness?

Young Gunz says:

nice rack

Joseph Giddings says:

will this work with a white shirt with blue and black stripes

Linda Soderberg says:

Never use bleach in hot water. I would have let the item soak in the hot soapy solution first until it cooled down (several hours). Then spun the well dissolved soapy solution out, remove the item (using gloves), fill to same level with cold water, add Chlorox liquid bleach, agitate or stir, then re-add the soapy item making sure it is completely covered with the bleach water, and let sit overnight.

Elizabeth Hamilton says:

You lost me at chlorine bleach! I can get things whit and remove all stains with a large container of very hot water and baking soda. Soak for about an hour , hand ring excess water and soda out, throw in washing machine pour in detergent and wash in hot water. No harsh chemicals needed. Works great!

nancy kopuz says:

Paupers Budget says:

So how do you get the water to not go full before you start to do the agitation? I use the laundry in my apartment building. . .I have thing slike t-shirts that need to be whitened and unders as well.
