How do I get my blouses and shirts back to the “white” they used to be? Since I take them to the dry cleaners, they seem to have become rather dingy.
If the articles are dry clean only, I would suggest trying a different drycleaner. It is possible they are re-using very dirty chemical or they arenot separating the colors properly.
If the articles can be cleaned at home, try a laundry booster, or a brightener like oxi-clean in addition to you regular laundry soap.
Many times, even dry clean only fabrics can be hand washed and air dried. For a home remedy soaking in lemon juice and water does help, as does air drying in the sunshine. The sun is a natural bleach, and it works very well.
