How To Get White Towels White Again
Jun 20, 2023
You should have your laundry done on a regular schedule. But when you have white towels, it is important that they stay white. In this article, we are going to tell you how to keep your white towels looking new and fresh again.
Why Do White Towels Change Color?
White towels are made of cotton, which is a natural fiber. Cotton absorbs dye and the towel can become discolored if it is washed with colored fabrics or dyes. Even if you don't notice your white towels turning gray when they come out of the dryer, the dye will still be there in the fibers and can cause your clothing to look dingy after being washed with them.
How To Get White Towels White Again?
There are a few things you can do to get your white towels white again. First, use cold water when washing them. Hot water can cause the dye in your towels to bleed out and stain your other clothes or towels in the load. Second, make sure that you use detergent on them--it's important for removing dirt and oils that may be left behind by body oil or makeup residue from being used as a face cloth.
Thirdly, bleach is also an option if none of these methods work for you (but please be careful!).
What’ll You Need?
Vinegar: The acid in vinegar reacts with the minerals in hard water to create a weak solution that breaks up stains.
Baking soda: When baking soda mixes with liquid, it releases carbon dioxide bubbles that help lift dirt from textiles and soften them at the same time.
Bleach: Bleach is another great way to brighten dingy-looking whites by removing stains caused by mold growth over time due to improper storage conditions within your home--especially during humid summer months when people tend not to air out their linens often enough.
Step to Step
- Wash in hot water.
- If needed, use bleach to whiten towels. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for bleaching products and don't use too much or it may damage your towels!
- Dry on high heat in the dryer or hang them outside on a clothesline (if you can do this).
How Do Hotels Keep Laundry White?
Hotels use a lot of bleach, detergent, and water to keep their towels white. This is because hotels are always busy, so they need to wash towels frequently.
The detergent helps remove stains from your clothes so they look brand new again!
Now that you know how to get white towels white again, it's time to put your new knowledge into action!
