Doing the washing is a regular task that most of us undertake with the goal of achieving bright, clean, and fresh-smelling clothes. However, when it comes to getting those whites truly white, we don’t have to turn to chemical-based bleach products.
In this blog, we will explore the power of natural ingredients and provide you with a step-by-step guide to achieving whiter whites in your laundry routine.
Can I wash whites and colours together?
Before starting the washing process, it's essential to separate your laundry into whites and colours. This simple step will prevent colour bleeding, ensuring your whites stay pristine.
How do you get rid of stains naturally?
For stubborn stains on white clothing, pre-treating is key. Prepare a mixture of water and a natural stain remover such as baking soda or lemon juice. Our Natural Stain Solution can also be used to really help remove those deeper stains. Apply the mixture directly to the stained area and let it sit for 15-30 minutes before washing as usual.
Why use bleach alternative?
Instead of using traditional chlorine bleach, which can be harsh and damaging to fabrics, opt for a natural bleach alternative. Our Alternative Bleach is an eco-friendly product is formulated with natural ingredients and is safe for both your clothes and the environment.
It is a powerhouse of a multi-purpose stain remover, disinfectant and deodoriser. Yet it is still non-toxic, non-abrasive and environmental friendly.
Using the Right Amount for Laundry
Below is a helpful guide into how to measure out your Alternative Bleach depending on what you are using it for:
To Pre - treat: For those stubborn stains, mix half a capful with our Stain Solutionand work it in with a brush. This will lift your stains right out.
To Pre - soak:For particularly dingy or yellowed whites, consider a soaking method to restore their brilliance. Add 1 capful to hot water and soak for 1 - 2 hours before washing.
To Whiten: For those whiter whites, add 2 capfuls to the cycle with our Natural Laundry Detergent and let these dry outside if possible.
Does sun-drying make your clothes whiter?
After completing the washing cycle, skip the dryer and opt for line-drying your whites in the sun. Sunlight acts as a natural bleach, further enhancing the brightness of your clothes. Hang your garments outside or near a sunny window to take advantage of this free and eco-friendly whitening method.
