How do you keep your whites white when you're a mom?

I love wearing white tees but ever since I became a mom all my white tees have some sort of stain spot on them and bleach isn't working!

  • Squirt lemon juice on the stain and let them sit outside in the sun! It works for cloth diapers. Also, do not put them in the dryer until the stain is gone!

  • use dishwasher soap, the powder kind with lemons...not dish soap but the stuff for automatic washers.
    soak your whites over night in 1/4 cup and cold water, in the machine. next day run the washer and run a 2nd rinse..your clothes should be gleaming whate

  • hang it in the sun. The most natural way no caustic chemicals necessary.

  • Simple... I don't wear white! lol!

    Honestly, I don't, we have white socks, but if they don't come perfectly clean in the regular wash, who cares, they're socks no one sees them. Beyond that, I don't do white... Everything we own is dark, it makes laundry much easier and looks much nicer!
