How to whiten tops?

ANMJaniceLaura Cooper


I had quite a few blouses and tees in my closet that I left hanging during the winter. There all white tops some have lace on them. They all have a yellow tinge to them. How do I get these tops white again?

    You could try Oxyclean, I use an equivalent product froom the Dollar Tree with the samt results. It is a Hydrogen peroxide based bleach/whitener called LA's Toatlly AwesomeOxygen Orange Base Cleaner, it does not contain chlorine...32 oz $1.00, white container with and orange label.Put you blouses either in a large container or in your washer on delicate cycle and let them set in the mixture. Follow on the container directions. I let mine set in the washer and then finish the cyc;e when ready.

    An oxy-clean soak is my recommendation, as well. Chlorine bleach will yellow some fibers, but peroxide bleaches usually don't do that.

    Before Oxy-clean, I used poweder dish washer machine soap dissolved in a sink full of water. It somehow worked every time!
