I always find that adding a handful of baking soda to my wash-load really helps to deep-clean the fabrics without wearing them out. (01/21/2007)
I also use the "Iron Out" product and it is not cheap but have found that it is less expensive than buying new whites. My local Tractor Supply store has it cheaper because you can buy it in bulk also when washing make sure you do a full load so that you only have to use the amount directed once. I have a huge plastic container that I soak my white in and I can get 2 loads of whites and only use 1/2 cup of product this stretches my bottle and I have found that I don not have to replace it as often. Iron Out is well worth the money especially if you have hard water. (01/24/2007)
Concerning the Wash in cold water post... I have seen this post several times in response to other laundry issues. Logically it does not add up. If using hot water "cooks" a stain then what does putting it into a dryer do? Detergent Manufacturers advise hotel laundries to raise the water temps 10 - 15 degrees in order to boost the performance of the detergents. Yes, some fabrics require cold water but with proper pretreatment Hot is still the best for whites. (01/24/2007)
I use Iron Out on whites and its great. But, can you use them on whites with colored embroidery/logo? Will it discolor the embroidery? (07/30/2007)
