How can I get my clothes whiter?

I use bleach.. it only eats holes in my whites. Yikes! What do you ladies use to get your clothes white?

  • I have the same problem! Tide and a little bleach gets the best result for me.

  • Try Mrs. Stewarts Bluing. You can usually find it in the laundry detergent isle.

  • Borax

  • use Clorox Bleach when you use the kind of bleach all they do is make your whites yellow and put holes in them.

  • Borax or Bluing agents are both good.

    Bleach - it eats at most synthetic cloth and is really bad for anything elastic.

  • I use borax with my loads of whites and it works great.
