Dresses are easy to buy than have them lasting for long. They tend to get dull or lose their colour if not maintained properly. Normal washing does not prevent dresses from losing their colour. There are few things to be done to have your dresses in a good condition. Here are few suggestions to sustain the white colour in your white cotton shirts. It is not that difficult to do this steps and it takes very less time.


The first step is to sort clothing in a very careful manner. You need hampers and drawstring bag for dry cleaners. Mistakes done by everyone is that they do not wash white clothes in a separate cycle. It is must to be aware of this fact that when you wash white clothes with other colour clothes it results in white transfer. Therefore white clothes should be washed separately in order to prevent colour transfer.

Overloading the washer is the second step. You should not overload the washer. After sorting clothes properly you should add the detergent using the amount recommended. Temperature and cycle are selected manually and so you should select the required numbers. Clothes are finally added and the washer is started. For better washing action you can add the clothes with a mixture of small and large items. To prevent overloading of the washer you can read the recommended amount the washer can withstand in the manual book or you can calculate the amount using the formula Volume (cubic . feet)= PRD.

You should identify the stains in the clothes and treat them immediately. There are guidelines according to the fabric types and types of stain in order to remove the stains. Yellowing of clothes is caused because of the use of chlorine bleach and so it should be avoided. The safe way is to use oxygen-based bleach.

Important thing to keep in mind is never to dry a garment that still has a stain because it can become permanent.

The best place to dry white clothing and garment is outside in sun rays. This is because the ultra violet rays from the sun can help brighten the clothes as it acts as a whitening agent.

You can use a colour remover if a cloth is gloomy or grey. This helps to brighten the cloth. There is other old fashioned way to brighten the fabric and this process is called bluing. This bluing process helps to counter react with the yellow pigments that are produced during laundry by producing blue pigments.

These are the steps to keep your white cotton shirts white and this process takes less than tem minutes.

Few Tips:

You should keep your washer clean or else your white cloth shows it to you after laundry. At least once in three months the washer should be cleaned properly.

Wash the white clothes after every time you wear even if they look clean. This is because body ils can turn your white garments yellow.
