Whiter Whites Recipe



I got this recipe from my mother-in-law for getting you whites amazingly white.  I also use it to get the sour smell out of dish rags and towels (a personal pet peeve). The only caveat for this recipe is do not use it on synthetic fabrics.  It is only for 100% cotton items.  It will yellow synthetic fabrics. 

1 cup powder laundry soap
1 cup powder dishwasher soap
1 cup chlorine bleach

Top Loader Washing Machine Instructions – Set water onto HOT and washer on Soak.  Add ingredients to tub while it is filling.  Once the tub is full add the items to wash, close the lid and leave overnight.  In the morning run the cycle and set the washer for a second rinse. 

Front Loader Washing Machine Instruction – Kinda out of luck here because the washer won’t do a soak where the fabrics sit in the water.  Instead fill the laundry room sink with water as hot as your faucet will go.  Add ingredients, stir to dissolve powders, add items, leave overnight.  In the morning drain the sink and refill with plain water to do a initial rinse.  Transfer to the washer and run cycle on HOT with an extra rinse if you have that setting available.

I’d love to hear laundry tips and hint from some of you!
