How To

Lighten Up, Already! And Brighten Summer Whites

Jul 16, 2015



If your summer whites are looking dull, lackluster, or yellow, then it’s time for a tune up! With a few simple steps, you can brighten both your wardrobe and your spirits!

 GATHER THESE TOOLS:

Stain Solution, All-Purpose Bleach Alternative, Stain Brush, Wash & Stain Bar, Whites Detergent, Fabric Fresh Classic

STEP 1:
All Pearly Whites

Pretreating with each wash will help prevent yellowing from occurring later in the season. Eliminate potential (unpleasant) surprises by using Stain Solution and All-Purpose Bleach Alternative to create a powerful yet toxin-free cleaning paste. Simply apply the solutions directly to the fabric and mix together with the Stain Brush. Pour hot water onto the mixture and continue to work it into the fabric.

For stains on collars, cuffs, and straps, opt for the Wash & Stain Bar. Simply lather the bar in warm water and work it into the fabric.

STEP 2:
Don’t Stop Soaking

Presoaking is the most important step in achieving your goal of ultra-bright whites. Create a bath of hot water and one capful All-Purpose Bleach Alternative and fully submerge the item. Allow it to soak for at least 30 minutes or until satisfied.

Note: This method is suitable for durable fabrics such as cotton, linen, and denim. All-Purpose Bleach Alternative should not be used on silk, woolens, or leather.

STEP 3:
Single Out this Specialized Solution

While there’s no need (or time) to presoak before each load, it doesn’t mean you can only whiten clothing once in a blue moon. We specifically formulated the Whites Detergent to preserve and keep pristine our summertime favorites.

This detergent’s innovative blend of stain fighting enzymes and natural bleach alternative work wonders in eliminating elements that cause yellowing like body oils and buildup. Perfect for everyday laundering, the Whites Detergent is safe for machine washing and hand washing and most effective when used in hot water.

STEP 4:
Hang High to Dry

If possible, line dry items outside. Sunlight acts as a natural, energy-saving whitener!
