You know that feeling you get when you're in a new place and you see something that looks amazing — but then it's just not quite right? That's what it's like to have a white shirt or dress, but it's stained with food, sweat, or something else.
You might be thinking about throwing out the whole lot of them (which is actually a royal waste). But don't despair! We're here to help you get your whites looking as good as new again.
Here are our top tips for removing stains from white clothes:
Wash your white clothes with a quality detergent, on as hot a wash as safe for the fabric.
If marks remain, try natural stain remover like baking soda or white vinegar.
Baking soda: make into a paste with water and scrub into stains. Leave for a few minutes then rinse.
White vinegar: soak clothes in water then scrub with a solution of a equal parts baking soda and white vinegar. Rinse and dry.
For plain fabrics, try bleaching the marks with diluted solution. Do not try this for delicate fabrics.
To remove yellow sweat stains from white clothes, try soaking them in diluted bleach or lemon juice.
