White clothes are always brilliant at first, but can dull over time into a dingy white or grey. Put a stop to that and bring back your divine whites thanks a few tips from Tide on how to say goodbye to dull and dingy whites.
Pre-treat:Using a bucket, a sink or a bowl, create a soaking solution by adding 1 ounce or 1 ½ tablespoons of Tide Plus Bleach Alternative Liquid per gallon of warm water. Allow the garment to soak for up to 30 minutes, weighting the item with a white towel to keep it totally submerged.
Load:Without rinsing off the detergent, place the garment into the washer with other items. Leaving the detergent on the stain will give your wash that extra boost of cleaning power.
Wash:Wash on the usual cycle, on the hottest wash temperature indicated. Always check the instructions on the garment’s care label.
Unload:When the cycle is complete, unload the garments immediately.
If the stain persists after washing, repeat the previous steps before tossing in the dryer, as drying will set the stain.
