No one likes the smell of bleach or many of the chemicals used in keeping your white clothes white. However, there are some simple and easy to do remedies to help keep those whites bright without all the chemicals. Next time you run your whites through the wash, add a half-cup of lemon juice to the rinse cycle or a quarter-cup of white vinegar. If you want to go even more natural, hang your clothes out in the sun to dry after washing them. The sun is a naturally brightener and will help keep your clothes white and your energy costs down!
If you have hard stains, try pre-treating your whites with a little soap and soaking them in water overnight. After that, run them through the wash like normal.
