I soaked my white clothes in 1 cup of White Brite and 2 Gallons of water. I then washed them in 1/2 cup of White Brite along with my normal laundry detergent and added an extra rinse to make sure the White Brite came out of the clothes. I dried normally. The once dingy whites are now bright and beautiful and a yellow shirt turned yellow from bleaching is now it's normal off white color again. However, it did not remove the set in stains. After doing some research, I found that I can soak the clothes in OxiClean and baking soda and that if I do it enough, the stains should come out.
Has anyone ever treated set in stains with OxiClean before? Is it possible to over treat the clothing? Both White Brite and OxiClean say they are safer than bleach. Neither of them have chlorine in them.
For tough stains I find 3% peroxide works best. My SO says they use it on carpeting all the time. It comes in a convenient little pump spray bottle. I've seen amazing results for blood, grass, wine, etc.
