Products like bleach or that contain bleach are not recommended as they are harsh chemicals, terrible for the environment and sensitive skins. Bleach can actually cause whites to yellow over time and can break down the fabric. Using natural bleach alternatives enables us to feel better about what’s going onto our children’s clothes as well as what’s going down the drain.
Here are a few natural bleach alternative ideas for keeping your whites looking bright:
Add baking soda (bi-carb.) to your wash – add 1 cup of baking soda per load of laundry directly in with the clothes, not in the detergent dispenser on a front loader. Like Borax (see below), Baking Soda helps remove odors, is a color-safe bleach alternative and gets your laundry detergent working better.
Add Borax to your wash – Add a 1/2 cup Borax to your laundry directly in with the clothes, not in the detergent dispenser on a front loader. Borax helps remove stains, is a color-safe bleach alternative, deodorises and softens hard water. Detergent will work more effectively in soft water.
You can also pre-treat with Borax by soaking stained garments in a mixture of 1 tablespoon borax to 4 litres of water.
Add vinegar to your rinse cycle – Add a 1/2 of a cup of plain, white vinegar to your rinse cycle. Not only does it help brighten white fabrics, it reduces static and helps remove any soap residues. Vinegar also helps with brighter colors and eliminates bleeding from fabric dyes that may stain your clothes.
Always use cold water for your wash and rinse cycles as well as soaking during pre-treating. Heat just bakes the stain into the clothes.
Please note – it is always a good idea to check manufactures washing instructions too.
The knitted green jump can no longer be worn from the end of this year.
We farewell our old microfibre (green and gold) tracksuit at the end of 2018.
