Dinginess most often affects cottons, linens, and durable synthetics. However, some other fabrics have been known to suffer from dinginess. Here’s how to brighten them.

Treating very or moderately dingy items: Presoak the item in a basin of cool to warm water mixed with ¼ cup Scented Vinegar. Then wash according to our instructions.-link silk

For extra stain fighting when treating synthetics only, add 1 capful of All-Purpose Bleach Alternative to the basin of warm water. Do not use on silk or wool. Then wash according to our instructions.-link silk

Treating mildly dingy items and preventing dinginess: Add ¼ cup of Scented Vinegar to the wash load or handwashing basin along with detergent. Wash according to our instructions.
