Whenever I go to buy clothes, my eyes go to white clothes. There, placed on the hanger, they are so beautiful that I do not think about the old age they will have. And of course, after a few sets the color is no longer so bright. Depending on the fabric, white clothing tends to turn yellow or gray. The good thing is that, just as there are tricks to wash white clothes and preserve color for longer, there are also tricks to bleach clothes .
In this case we are going to forget about bleach and the products they sell in stores and we are going to prepare our own home remedies.
1. Lemon juice for sweat and yellow spots
Have yellowish spots started to come out? Quiet. Juice three lemons and bring to a boil . Then, put the garment in for half an hour or 40 minutes. Take it out, rub it, rinse it and wash it in the washing machine.
Another option is to put half a lemon inside a sock in the drum of the washing machine, gather all the clothes you want to bleach and wash them.
2. Vinegar and water
White vinegar is the alternative to lemon, but the good thing is that this product does not need to be boiled. Just pour a good stream (125 ml) in a bucket with a liter of water and leave the garment to soak for approximately 40 minutes . Then wash it.
For sweat stains, it is best to directly pour the vinegar and rub them adding soap.
3. Salt, lemon and detergent
This trick is similar to the first one we have said. It is perfect, above all, to remove sweat stains. You will need: 62 grams of laundry detergent (the equivalent of a quarter cup), 2 liters of water, the juice of 3 lemons and a tablespoon of salt.
What are you doing with all that? Follow these steps:
1. Bring the water to a boil along with the detergent, the lemon juice and the salt.
2. With the boiling water, introduce the garment you want to bleach.
3. Soak for 40 minutes.
4. Rinse with plenty of water and dry in the sun.
