This is methods to revive your white garments with home made yellowing suggestions


Your yellowing, tarnished whites aren’t a hopeless case. Here’s what you can do to bring back the white. Even if they are not stained by any incident, over time white clothes can turn yellowish.

This also happens when a white garment has been stored for too long. And, of course, when the garment has been soiled after so much use, darker stains remain. In any case, don’t stop wearing your clothes because of it. Take a look at these tips on how to whiten your whites and make them look as good as new.

How to effectively bleach clothes

Some of the tips that you are going to see now can be used to whiten the whole outfit, while others can only be used to bleach a yellowish part. Do as you see fit.

With bleach

In a basin, put 200 ml of hot water + ½ capful of bleach or sanitary water and soak the garment for 20 minutes. Rinse well and wash as usual.

Mixing vinegar and baking soda

This duo is powerful for whitening, clarifying and disinfecting your whites. Form a small paste with the vinegar and baking soda and apply it to the stain you want to remove. Leave it for half an hour, rinse it well and wash it as usual.

Mixture for dishcloths and socks

White socks and tea towels can be removed with the following mixture: 2 liters of hot water + ½ cup of baking soda + ½ cup of liquid laundry soap + ½ cup of alcohol.

Put the pieces in this mixture and leave to act for half an hour. Then see what it looks like. If you still have dirt, mix again, as the current mix already contains some of the dirt that has come off the clothes. Then wash everything normally.

How to bleach clothes with hydrogen peroxide

Prepare, in a basin, a mixture of 2 liters of hot water + 1 tablespoon of powdered soap + 2 tablespoons of hydrogen peroxide. Stir well.

Soak your white clothes in this mixture and leave them for 20 to 30 minutes. Then rinse thoroughly and wash.

With soap powder and baking soda

If you only have these two ingredients, you can also learn how to effectively bleach white clothes. Heat water in a saucepan, enough to cover the clothes you want to launder.

Then mix in some soap powder until the water turns blue. It doesn’t have to be a lot. Add 3 tablespoons of baking soda and put the clothes in this mixture.

Let the water cool and take the clothes out to check if they have laundered. If not, re-soak to avoid larger stains from dirt that has already been released into the water. Then wash the clothes as usual.

What not to do when bleaching clothes

Pay attention to how long your whites are soaked, especially if you are using bleach. If you let the clothes soak for more than 20 or 30 minutes, you risk staining them even more, as the stain comes off the fabric, passes through the water and re-soaks the fabric. Let it soak for about 20 minutes, then rinse thoroughly and wash other white items normally.
