Miracle Recipe For Getting Your Whites Whiter
HOT HOT HOT Water – you can boil extra water on the stove to make even hotter.
1 cup of laundry detergent
1 cup powdered dish washer detergent
1 cup bleach
1/2 cup borax
* Keep in mind that you want this in a concentrated batch so don’t overfill the washer. The more water you have in the tub the less concentrated your mixture will be. Have the water just barely cover you batch of laundry.

CLEANERS NOTE: If you have ever used oxyclean products on fabrics, then you use a bleach product after, it will change the color of white to a dingy white. Never combine the two. If you love oxy clean products, you will have to omit bleach from your routine.
