What do you do when your white bras start to turn grey on the straps?

I have a really expensive bra, its my favorite one, but its cream colored and pink in some spots. Its starting to turn greyish, and Idont like how it looks when I wear it with white tanktops! It looks dirty you know? Ive tried to scrub it by hand with laundry soap and then I used dish soap even, but do you guys know any tricks? I dont want to bleach it because it has colors on it. Thankyou!

  • I use woolite with a toothbrush. It's turning gray from the dead skin cells that are building up in the elastic.

  • I was going to also say to soak it in oxyclean overnight. It turned my hubby's white hat..white again without damaging the colors.

  • I always do a bleach load, and they have never turned grey, EVER

  • I use a product that is actually a very mild yet highly effective carpet cleaner called "Folex"..on some of the worst stains on my clothes (blood, coffee, chocolate, lipstick). You can get a large spray bottle at the 'Home Depot" for around $5.99.

    I swear it's the best stuff for everything ! and I am very picky about washing my clothes ...Get it, you'll never be without it again.
