Removing Dinginess from Whites

To remove the "dingies" from white clothes drop a dishwasher soap tab, or a half cup of dishwasher powder (must be for dishwashing machine) into your washer, along with your regular laundry soap, and wash as usual. Works really great on white socks!

I also use Vinegar. About a 1/2 cup every load. What a difference!

Will this work with only cold water washes? I will give it a shot. I use vinegar for my rinse cycle as most people I know are allergic to fabric softener and it also prevents water from being absorbed into a bath towel. Sue
