Ask Tug: Wanna Know the Secret to Keeping Your Undershirts Their Whitest and Brightest Without Using Bleach?
Well if you asked me that question a couple of days ago, I probably would have referred you to several posts here that talk about removing deodorant stains from your undershirts.
But today, I sit here more enlightened because I ran across a really great article from Stephanie, a SAHM who co-runs the My Frugal Lifestyle blog with her friend Camille. In the article she explains how to get white clothes their absolute whitest and brightest WITHOUT using bleach! Boy am I going to tell Mrs. Tug about this one.
Here are some before and after pictures (pretty amazing):
Here’s the secret straight from her blog:
I used a 1/2 cup of my homemade laundry detergent. I threw in 2 Tablespoons of the Arm & Hammer Super Washing Soda into my wash load. I had to do a little extra effort with my bra, so I sprayed it down with my homemade Spray n’ Wash before I chucked it into the washer. This is also great on your man’s undershirts with their good ol’ pit stains! Once the washer was done, this is what I got: [Tug: pictured above]
I’ve got a couple white undershirts that are starting to lose their brightness, so I’m going to check with Mrs. Tug to see if we can give this a try!
If you decide to go over to Stephanie’s blog and like what you read, please be sure to give her some love and post a comment on the article there. I’m sure she’d appreciate it.
