1. Separate, separate, separate
2. Hassle-free stain removal
Step 3 - Apply half a capful of our Tough Love Stain Removal directly to the stain, massage in gently with your fingers or our Natural Sea Sponge, and then leave to soak in warm water for one hour. If the stain has faded but not totally disappeared, then repeat. When the stain is completely gone, wash as normal.
3. Choose your detergent
Another great way to keep white clothes looking bright is to choose a detergent that contains optical brighteners. This is a substance that transforms UV light waves to enhance blue light and minimize the amount of yellow light to make things appear whiter. So, they don't get your clothes any cleaner but make them appear whiter and brighter. A great tip for making your whites shine!
Our No.2 Signature Eco Wash contains optical brighteners and works amazingly at low temperatures. Give it a go.
Then, pop half a capful of tough love stain removal in the pre-wash drawer in your washing machine. This will give all your whites a bright boost!
4. Make use of the sun
One of our best tips for laundry in general, let alone in regards to keeping your white clothes white, is to air dry your lights in direct sunlight - this way, you're harnessing the natural bleaching power of the sun's UV rays.
However, make sure not to do this with your darker clothes, as it'll accelerate colour fading. If you're drying dark clothes outside, dry inside out to try and avoid fading on the important side!
Wow, your whites are shining! Now you've got our tips and tricks for making your white clothes sparkle, and now you're a dab hand at stain removal, you'll be the one to watch at the beach this summer!
