What products do you use to wash white clothes?


I was just wondering what other moms use when it comes to wash white clothes. My husband works in a restaurant and wear white shirt, I only use Clorox and sometimes is not enough.

Any advice??

  • Have you tried oxy clean or pre- soaking with a stain remover before washing

  • Laundry soap and Clorox. This is the only bleach that I now use. The others seem to yellow the clothes. I also hang them out on the clothes line when the sun is out .

  • Oxyclean is a godsend that I discovered after becoming a mother and buying my children white clothing =P I presoak over night, wash the next day in Tide or Gain detergent. Saved a lot of clothes this way!
