White is a perfect shade for summers. It gives cool & relaxing appeal. So here r some tips to keep ur white actually white....

*Hot water keeps clothes white. Use the hottest water the fabric can withstand. Give a look at the instructions on the garments.

*Do not wash white clothes with coloured ones.

*Too much detergent can lead to unwanted deposits. So rinse ur clothes properly.

*If u get the supply of hard water, then use an additive to soften the water. An easy way is to add 1/2 cup of white vinegar to the water used for the last rinse.

*Do not use chlorine bleach for white fabric as it will discolour ur white n make the fabric weak.

*Try adding 250gms of 3percent hydrogen peroxide to ur wash. This solution is generally available at all pharmacies.

*Add 1/2 cup lemon juice to the rinse cycle of ur washing machine (medium load) or
to the last rinse if hand washing.

*For dirty rings around the collars of a shirt, squirt some shampoo onto the area & rub it in with a nail brush before washing. U can also try rubbing baking soda or white chalk

*Dry pure cotton whites in the sun they will acquire a clean shine.
