Frustrated with tough stains, not sure how to clean your precious heirlooms, sick of yellowing on your favorite tees? Fret no more "Ask The Experts Gwen & Lindsey" on our website.
Here is this week's question and answer:
Q: "I am trying to get my white sheets nice and white. While I regularly use your Whites detergent for them, I will admit that I have also tried it with bleach and feel this may have actually hurt my cause (as they are now dingy and a little yellowed). Do you have a recommendation on how to get them white again? Should I consider adding some of your new bleach alternative? Love your products, thank you so much!" -Stephanie
A: "Hi Stephanie, I feel your pain. I understand the need to go to the dark side (bleach) sometimes....usually, it works, however the downturns need to be known. One of the reasons I call it the dark side is because it will and does weaken the fabrics. I have literally put my hand through multiple sets of fitted sheets prior to my laundress career! Secondly, bleach yellows polyester, silk and synthetic fibers - so if your linens have any kind of blend this would attribute to yellowing. And just plain and simple - sometimes chlorine bleach results are yellowing vs. whitening. I do recommend our bleach alternative, we have been so excited about the performance - and if it doesn't solve your bedding problems you can use it for your other laundry and to clean your whole house! Happy laundering!" -Gwen
