Towels lose their aspect over time, especially if they are white and frequently washed. Thus, they become harsh at touch and get a yellowish hue. You don’t have to throw them and purchase new towels, because you can whiten them back with only one ingredient.
Baking soda has a great power to remove stains due to its abrasive effect. It doesn’t bleach the towels directly, but it helps in the washing process. It helps the laundry detergents to penetrate deeper into the fabric so as to eliminate the dirt accumulated over time.
How do you use baking soda to whiten the towels?
Baking soda can be used to whiten the towels in different ways. It all depends on the stain.
If the stain is not old, add baking soda to the prewash program of the washing machine.
If the stain penetrated the fabric, you need to pour white vinegar directly on the stain and then add baking soda in the prewash program of your washing machine.
Your towels are not white yet?
Soak your towels in warm water where you’ve added a cup of white vinegar and 3 tablespoons of baking soda. Leave the towels to soak overnight, and then wash them as usual.
