We all have our favorite clothes we want to wear over and over again. But unfortunately, nothing lasts forever, and often our fashion items (especially the white ones) become unwearable very quickly.

But, you can make your white clothes last longer if you take care of them. In fact, common ingredients everyone have at home can help keep your clothes in better condition and prevent them from turning gray and dirty.

In the article you will find the most popular and effective methods to extend the life of your clothes and making them look new for a longer time.

1. Removing stubborn stains

I like this

Pour 2 liters of water in a large pot, and bring to a boil. Take three lemons, and squeeze the juice. Mix a tablespoon of salt in the hot water. And add the lemon juice and a quarter cup of washing powder. Soak the clothes for about 40 minutes, then wash only with water 2-3 times. Hang to dry.

Good to know:

This method also works great for removing sweat stains in the armpit area.

2. Make white shirts much whiter

I like this

Pour a tablespoon of baking soda directly onto the stained area. Cut half a lemon, and rub it on the stain. Leave for 15 minutes, then wash immediately with warm water.

Good to know:

This method is usually used to remove yellow stains from white shirts. You can also make a paste of baking soda and lemon and then rub it on the area with the stain.

3. All-purpose bleach

I like this

Cut two lemons in half, and add them to a bowl of boiled water. Put the white clothes in the bowl, and leave them inside for 40 minutes. After soaking, wash as usual in the machine.

Useful tip:

Lemons can perfectly clean all the details of your clothing, and they do not damage the fabric.

4. Washing delicate clothes

I like this

Mix 1/4 cup of washing powder with 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide, and add about 2 liters of hot water. Soak the clothes for 30 minutes, then wash thoroughly.

Important to remember:

To maintain the quality of the clothes, it is important to choose the washing powder carefully. This recipe is suitable for washing wool and other delicate fabrics.

5. Intensive washing

I like this

Add 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide and 4 drops of ammonia to one liter of water. Soak the clothes for 10 minutes, then wash thoroughly.

Important to remember:

This rinse is much stronger than the others, so it is also more effective. Don't forget to wear gloves when using it.

6. Natural fabric softener

I like this

Soak the clothes for 40 minutes in one liter of hot water and 1/2 cup of vinegar. If you want to get rid of sweat stains, pour the vinegar on the stained area and rub well with a bar of soap.

Pay attention:

Vinegar not only whitens the clothes, but is used as a natural fabric softener.

7. Washing linen

I like this

Put the cloth in a bucket of sour milk (you can leave the milk out or add vinegar to it), and leave for 1-2 hours. Then wash as usual in the machine. You can repeat the process if necessary.

A little trick:

This technique not only keeps the fabric longer, but also makes it softer, and more pleasant to the skin.
