With six kids at home, I do a lot of laundry, and average between 12-15 loads a week! I use white sheets and white towels, and with all of the white tee shirts, blouses, dress shirts, cleaning rags, dishrags, and socks, at least half of the laundry consists of white loads. It can be a challenge to keep whites really crisp, and not have them turn yellow or gray, so I'm always looking for ways to help. Today I'm sharing the things I've learned, and some of my best tips on how to Keep Your Whites White!

7. Pretreat stains…the sooner the better.
The sooner you can treat a stain, the more likely it is to come out. Don’t forget to treat the stains you can’t see, like under the arms. Soak them if necessary!
8. Try treating with Oxi Clean.
9. Add vinegar to your load.
Add 1/4 c. to 1/2 c. of white vinegar to a load of your white laundry to whiten, brighten, reduce odor and soften your clothes. You shouldn’t use vinegar on some delicate fabrics, so if you’re questioning it, do a little research to see if you should or not.
P.S. I also like to add vinegar and baking soda to an empty washer and run a cycle on hot water. It cleans my machine and removes the detergent residue that builds up.
