How to whiten underwear at home with high quality and still not ruin it?

Even 30 years ago, most women did not have many pairs of panties. Then all things were done better, but were much less diverse and accessible. Now all the counters are clogged with clothes, linen, buy - I do not want. The only problem is that the use of cheap fabrics and synthetics leads to the fact that things "live" less and very quickly lose their presentable appearance. Then the girls begin to wonder: how to whiten underwear at home?

Types of funds

There are three types of products that will help whiten underwear and save your favorite bra from yellowing. These are oxygen, optical and chlorine bleaches. Each of these types has its advantages and disadvantages.

  • Optical means work on the principle of light reflection. By their name you can understand that the result of their work is visible only to the eye, in fact, you can’t whiten anything. The substances in these products reflect light and make the white color brighter, but only on clean and more or less new fabric.
  • Chlorine bleaches they saved linen from yellowness back in the days of our grandmothers, when they could only wash everything at home. The most common and clean example is bleach. Such tools are very effective, they work quickly and cleanly. The only problem is that chlorine is too strong a reagent. It literally corrodes the fabric after several uses. In addition, it is very caustic, smells sharply and can cause irritation.
  • Oxygen bleaches perfectly help to wash clothes. They do not spoil fabrics, can be used in a washing machine, bleach lace bras and make colored things contrast.

White bra

How to wash off a white bra?

At home, boiling is a great choice. If the bra is made of cotton or linen, this will work with a bang. Take an enameled bucket or tank (galvanized is also suitable).


Better not use iron and copper tanks. They can react with hot water and ruin all laundry.

Put a white rag on the bottom of the container and pour water there. Dissolve your favorite detergent (but not chlorine-based) in it, lather the especially dirty parts of things. Then spread them out and gently place them in water. You can add a little ammonia to 10 liters of water. Put the container on the fire and boil for half an hour or an hour. So you managed to whiten the bra at home to its original condition.

Synthetic white underwear

You will notice the excellent result as soon as you pull out the white bra or panties from the drum.
