We all know that after some period of time, the white clothes and laundry turn their snow white color into pale gray.
Many people use synthetic bleach in order to prevent this, but in fact, this only makes things worse. It thins the clothes and you will not get the desired results!
How to whiten your clothes?
When it comes to whitening clothes, there are a number of different natural methods that were used for many years and which can help you whiten your clothes.
So, instead of buying bleaches and other laundry products which usually are expensive and not so effective, we recommend you to use an old-fashioned homemade mixture. One of the simplest and most affordable methods to whiten your clothes is potassium permanganate.
Pour 10 liters of water in a large bowl and add few crystals of potassium permanganate into it, until the water becomes pink. Make sure not to put too much potassium permanganate because the water should not get dark purple color. Next, you should pour 200 grams of laundry detergent in the water and make sure to stir well. Put your laundry in the prepared solution.
Take a nylon bag and wrap the bowl. Let your laundry stay like this in the solution for 4-5 hours, or just let it stand overnight. In the morning, make sure to strain the clothes. Then, put them in your laundry machine and wash them as usual. You can also wash the clothes before you put them in this solution. In a case you washed them before then all you have to do is rinse them with clean water and hang them to dry.
Note: You can repeat this procedure until your clothes become perfectly white and have the shiny white color. The results will amaze you!
Another thing that can help you and is more a affordable solution is baking soda. All you have to do is to put 2-3 tablespoons of baking soda to your laundry detergent.
These healthy ingredients will also reduce the hardness of the water, thus making the laundry detergents more efficient. Many people use baking soda as a bleach substitute.
Just put some baking powder along with the laundry detergent. This method is very useful, and as we said before, you will be amazed by the results!
