How to keep your whites, white ?
In two easy steps...
There is nothing quite like a white shirt to illuminate your outfit. Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to keep your light-coloured favourites as white as snow for seasons to come.
Spot Treatment - It is important to treat stains and discolouration before laundering your garment. Begin by dampening any discolourations with lukewarm water. Such problem areas include under the armpits or around the collar. Then apply The Laundress’ Stain Solution directly to the area in question and work the product into the garment with the tip of your finger or a soft bristle toothbrush. For best results, sprinkle a generous amount of The Laundress’ All-Purpose Bleach Alternative on top of the Stain Solution to create a paste. Finally, allow for lukewarm water to run directly over the treated area. When combined, these two products work magic at erasing the traces of any stain on the whitest of garments.
Soak - A little soak can go a long way to ensuring your white garments remain as bright as the day you purchased. Fill a basin with lukewarm water and add a capful of the 'The Laundress’ All-Purpose Bleach Alternative, making sure that all the granules dilute in the water. Add in your garment and let soak for approximately 30 minutes before washing. Soaking with this oxygen bleach alternative will continue the fight against stains while brightening the whole garment.
