Tess asked 8 years ago

Is there a way to make white sheets white again? You can see a tinge to the sheet from where we’ve been laying on it. Bleach isn’t working.

Pre-treat the stain with Dawn dish liquid. Rinse, add 1 cup of lemon-scented ammonia to your washing machine, and launder as usual. Hang it outside in the sun to bleach naturally. If it’s still not white, try Mrs. Stewart’s bluing (http://www.mrsstewart.com), and rewash and hang outside in the sun. Can try RIT fabric dye which has a whitewash dye available that works well on whites, too.
