Your white clothes are not that fresh anymore ? You don’t enjoy them after a couple of washes ?
- If you have a top-loading washer where you can actually fill the washer with water before adding clothes, let the washer fill about a quarter of the way and then add your bluing agent. After it mixes into the water, add your clothes and wash as normal.
- If you have to add the bluing agent after the clothes are already in the wash, dilute your 1/4 teaspoon in a quart of water and then add the solution to the wash water in the machine. If you’re adding it for the rinse cycle, use about 1/8 teaspoon instead.
- If you have an high efficiency (HE) machine, it uses much less water during the wash cycles. The best way to add bluing agent into the wash is to dilute it in water and then add as much of the solution as you can to the dispensing drawer on your machine. You won’t get as much of the bluing agent into the wash, but you don’t risk the machine spitting undiluted blue onto your clothes and staining them.
- Bluing agent is fine to use with detergent, but avoid using it with other laundry additives like bleach or fabric softener as they can sometimes cause spotting and staining when used together.
Add some blue, About 1/4 teaspoon of bluing agent on a single load will be enough to get a brighter white. Most manufacturers wash your white clothes with bluing agent.
