Refresh your whites

No 53/79

Here’s a sweet-smelling old-school tip for all those once-whites, that are now looking a little dull.

You need:

Formerly white clothes and a few lemons.

How to:

Forget about bleach. It’s bad for the environment and does in fact turn some fabrics yellow. Soak your garments in warm water and lemon juice overnight. Or you can add a cup of lemon juice into the fabric softener compartment, next time you wash whites. Wash as usual and then hang to dry, fingers crossed for sunshine.

Always read the care label thoroughly before treating any stains. Make sure that the treatment won’t damage the fabric by testing a small amount somewhere less visible.
