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)

Try straight bleach an leave it on for about 10 min then wash. (assuming it is white). If that doesn't work spray the white jacket with oven cleaner like easy off, wait ten min and wash.
