    What can one do to keep white shirts and blouses in good condition?

    I just got a new white blouse and want it to remain free of stains and obvious wear for as long as possible... what should I do to keep it crisp, white, and free from stains?

    Don't have kids. LOL! Really, I'm interested in a decent answer to this question, too. I don't have any clothes that aren't stained anymore.

    I use a half cup of oxyclean in the whites..it helps and is gentler than bleach..Turning clothes inside out helps to make them last longer..

    My mom always made whites white when she did laundry but would never tell me how because she thought I shouldn't do laundry.  When she discovered that I actually knew how to operate a washing machine she was shocked.... that was five years after I moved out... what was she thinking?  Her secret was to soak the whites overnight in BIZ...and then wash them normally.   There was another product before BIZ that disappeared from the market for whatever reason and BIZ was the next best thing.  You can get a five gallon bucket with a lid on it as most hardware stores....

    A few ideas, I hope they help:

    - Only wash it with other white items
    - Wear it when you know you won't be eating anything
    - Don't go anywhere near a pen
    - Wear a deodorant that doesn't leave stains under the arms

    I avoid white clothes - they are too high maintainance for me.

    Handwash them and if you have to use the washing machine, ensure they are not mixed with other colours.

    If you consider the white shirt an investment, I would suggest that you invest in keeping it white and fresh with the use of your local dry cleaners.  The upkeep can be more expensive than washing and drying at the laundry or in the laundry room but the shirt which is an important part of a woman's wardrobe deserves good care.
