My son's chef coats say "no bleach". I have used Tide in cold water and hot water. When I use bleach they turn gray. They are cotton. How do I get them clean?

Try adding borax or vinegar to your regular detergent. (07/29/2005)
I wash all my whites in Whisk laundry detergent. People always ask me how I keep them so white. I wear white uniforms.

Soak your coats in Oxyclean for a few hours or overnight. Comes in a bucket with instructions on the label. I use it regularly now instead of bleach which is hard on clothes. (07/30/2005)
I soak mine in a clean pail filled with scalding water (overnight) and one scoop of powdered dish washer detergent. Then use hot water to wash. Mine stay nice and white that way. (07/30/2005)
Boil a half of lemon in a couple of cups of water then pour the lemon and boiled water into a basin that has your chef coat and water. The lemon will make your whites as bright as new. (08/01/2005)
