Are you using laundry detergent WITH bleach? I use to have the same problem until I stopped using detergent with bleach.

Are you or anyone in your family using an acne treatment containing benzoil peroxide? It will cause faded spots on clothes, sheets, or anything it touches.

Tammy, I'm sort of a neighbor. I live at Nutall Rise, & the water is terrible here on the Aucilla River. When the river is high I have opposite problems. My clothes had dark spots on them. I discovered putting fabric softener in the wash was the cause of my spotting. Don't know your water source (well or city), but that may be a start. I work at JR's Aucilla River Store on weekends. If you go there, ask for me. Would love to meet you. Good luck neighbor!

I live in an urban area and often the water company has to put in a lot of chlorine to make it safe. Some pwople have complained about white spots in their laundry. Of course, this doesn't solve the problem. Just wanted you to know what it could be. Pam

p.s. I filter all my drinking water!
