White Brite For Laundry Whites

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.

Now, it's a staple in my laundry room and I’m looking for white things to use this product on! White Brite is available online and in stores.

Bright Whites!

      This product actually works better than bleach somehow. It has brightened items that I've used bleaches on! Thanks much for stopping in and letting me here from you on this product!

      I have never heard of this product but will look for it and give it a try. I generally use bleach for my whites. I realize that delicate items like your doilies would probably not stand up to bleaching. Nice to know about this. Obviously it is an old tried and true product from what you say. Up and useful votes.

      It works so well that I do hope you can use it, but remember that White Brite is a powder. I was careful not to breath the powder when I poured it out, even though I don't have a huge problem with allergies. With your allergies you might want to be extra careful about it.

      Thanks much for coming by and for your input!

      I'm going to have to try this stuff to see if it will work without causing me an allergic reaction. That is my biggest problem with laundry detergents, fabric softners, stain removers, etc.

      Voting you up, useful, and interesting!

      After I discovered what I had done, I then had trouble getting the new reply posted--sometimes I wonder if I know what I'm doing… :) Thanks much for understanding!!

      I saw it. I was wondering, in fact I thought maybe I was going crazy. Which would not be a surprise? Did I read something I didn’t know I read?

      Funny, I know how things like that happen don't worry about it.

      If you saw my first reply you probably think I went over the edge, but I just need to stay focused on the task at hand rather than try to think about two things at one time. :)

      I hope you will get lots of good use out of this product. Thank you kindly for visiting and for leaving me a note!

      How nice that the product has not changed over time and we can enjoy its effectiveness just as your mom did. Thanks much for adding that memory to this discussion! :)

      I have forgotten about this laundry option. My mother used to use it and her whites were always so bright. I may have to buy it next time I need detergent.

      The way White Brite worked really did astonish me. The results were lasting, too. It's not a product you have to use on the same items often.

      Thanks much for checking this hub out and letting me hear from you!

      I have never used this product but will definitely try it out. It looks like it will brighten all whites and take out stains better than bleach. Very useful hub.
