About a year ago, my husband made the mistake of adding bleach to our colored clothes ending in a streaked clothes disaster. LAUNDRY SCHMAUNDRY PART ONE We are still wearing our slightly bleached outfits (and we found a few more splotches on some other items) for our every day cleaning kind of clothes. Every time I come across the worst items of the pile, I end up smiling remembering the humor of that laundry fiasco!
BUT, I have a small problem now. I actually need to wash some white clothes and really ensure that they come out white. Our family borrowed some white collared shirts for a special event and now I need to return them… in 100% condition. I only have one chance to make sure I do this correctly.
The worst laundry mistakes I have ever made usually revolved around lipstick left in a pocket, an un-cashed check crumbling to pieces in the soapy water or a white shirt being washed with a red dress and turning pink. And of course, the first thing I think about with white shirts is somehow turning it purple or pink… or bleach eating a hole into one of the shirts. Man oh man, laundry shouldn’t be this difficult!
Molly fans ~ I need some help!! What do you do to ensure that your white clothes stay white after being washed? Do you use straight bleach or a combination of other ingredients? Is there a natural way to clean your white clothes?
