After wearing your clothes for a few months, it is really difficult to remain bright and white.
Due to oils and sweat and discoloration from other clothes, they can be easily covered in stains. So the whitish color they have is not as beautiful as before.
In order to preserve the condition of white clothes, we use to buy expensive laundry detergents. These products are full of brighteners that actually make the clothes whiter than before.
These chemicals give the impression that they are white and clean and make the clothes glow on ultraviolet lights. Large amounts of benzene are contained in numerous optical brighteners which is an extremely dangerous substance.
When people wear clothes washed with them, these chemicals lead to allergic reactions.
When exposed to daylight, optical brighteners cause reactions including irritations and rashes.
Before you use some harmful chemical cleaner, we suggest a safer method. We will actually present you a few ways to do so:
Make a mixture between a cup of baking soda and 4 liters of water. Soak the white clothes in the resulting mixture and they will be totally clean and white, once finished. You can avoid all types of additives in the washing process in this way.
You can effectively dissolve down the gunk that has left yellow stains on the white clothes by using aspirin pills. In order not to leave their color on the clothes, be sure to avoid colored varieties of this pill. You have to do the following procedure: take 5 white aspirin pills, dissolve them in water and soak the clothes in the mixture. In the end, store them in the washing machine for a normal washing procedure.
Add a cup of lemon juice while rinsing the white clothes in your washing machine.
Place the white clothes in a basin with hot water. Add some lemon juice in the basin and let the clothes soak in the mixture during the night. Take them out of the basin in the morning and then wash them as always.
You can effectively whiten your clothes with your eco-friendly dishwasher detergent. Wash your clothes as always with a previously added cup of it in the laundry detergent. Try to use detergents that don’t contain phosphate and chlorine.
Distilled White Vinegar
Put one cup of this vinegar in your laundry detergent. For instance, you also directly spray vinegar on the stains. During the drying process, the unpleasant vinegar odor will disappear.
Due to its various uses and benefits, hydrogen peroxide (3%) is commonly used in a number of ways. Add a cup of this nonchlorine bleach in the laundry detergent and wash as usual.
