Do you know how to get whites clean without bleach ….in fact it works better than bleach….in my opinion.
Several months ago I shared a post about caring for my white slipcovers and keeping my sons football pants white. In the post I mentioned the awesome tip an umpires wife shared with me about her husbands umpire pants and why they were always the whitest on the field. (I mean get out the sunglasses white lol) She told me the reason is because she soaks them in Electrasol after every game. I always wondered how to get whites their whitest and how to get those tough stains out without using bleach. I developed an allergy to bleach, but not only that, bleach wasn’t working for me, my whites seemed dingy and the tough stains weren’t coming out. So I took the sweet ladies advice and started soaking my son’s football pants in Electrosol to get the stains out. I couldn’t believe the difference… Stains were gone and fresher than white pants, socks, and tees were the result. It works better than bleach in my opinion, and gets clothes whiter than anything I’ve tried. That was 8 years ago and I still use Electrosol today to get out those tough stains and brighten my whites. I’ve never tried other dishwashing detergents but they might work just as well. Oh, don’t forget to look for a coupon to save money on Electralsol…there are plenty of them available.
I do have to say, the soaking process isn’t as easy for me since we purchased a front loader. I never considered that issue when we decided to purchase the front loader….Man do I miss that soaking option!!! It is so much more of a hassel in the big sink!! Next time we purchase a washer ….I’m going back to the top loader, for sure!! PS. If it isn’t working, you aren’t using enough Electrasol.
