White Brite Really Does Get Whites White!
Whites can become a bit dingy over time, it's simply part of life. Sometimes a particular stain creates an impossible problem for white laundry items. Not for me anymore--White Bright is a new-to-me laundry product that works well in my HE machine.
First Use of this Laundry Whitener
My white towels were in need of some brightening. I had one that was especially dingy. How towels get used for jobs they were not made to do is a mystery with many facets, the biggest of which is to figure out a solution to the aftermath.
While checking out laundry products designed to do the job I discovered White Brite. There was just one problem. I was suspicious of it because my friend who stays on top of all the newest products had never mentioned this to me before.
Something wasn’t right. Could it be possible that I found it before she did? I took a gamble and gave it a whirl. Wow! was all I could say when I opened my washer after using it the first time. The product worked very well and the results have been long-lasting.
Second Use of White Brite
Since that went well, I ventured to try it on some white shirts and blouses. Some were older and therefore dingier than others, but I pitched them all in together and followed the White Brite manufacturer's instructions again.
It really was amazing to have every shirt and blouse come out nice and white. Now I knew I could safely mention it to my friend. She was surprised that I found a product before she did, but she was the one who found the super-duper online coupons, so we're calling it even.
She is an expert at everything household, so I was pleased (and relieved) to hear that she loves White Brite as much as I do. She did warn me though, that although the bottle says it might work on colored fabrics, she will definitely not be using it on anything but whites in the future.

Third Use of White Brite
It was nice to solve the problem of how to brighten whites that had dulled over time, but I had not thought about using it on specific stains. That is, until a problem developed when I used my black iris in a flower arrangement that I placed on an heirloom doily.
I had no idea that this iris would weep black tears! First I was shocked, then I was dismayed at the sight of the dark, dark stain on my aunt’s doily. I did not know whether it was a permanent stain.
When I first saw it I ran cold water over it and soaked it. Then I repeated the process several times. The stain was reduced, but far from gone. After letting it soak for another day, I remembered the White Brite.
After rinsing and gently squeezing the doily out, I put it in a lingerie bag and washed it with my white towels using my new product. What a relief it was to take that bag out of the washer and remove a whiter than ever doily!
To be able to hand it down to my daughter with pride means a lot, and I’ve already whitened several other vintage doilies in the same way.
