How to get white clothes bright again

Get White Clothes bright again

There’s nothing like a crisp white shirt or blouse. And a classic white t-shirt never goes out of style. But when it comes to whites, you want to keep them as white as possible. So, how do you do it?

Here we’re focusing on how to get bright white clothes and what you can do if you’ve had a colour run disaster. 

How to get grey clothes back to white

White clothes looking a little on the grey side? Have your favourite white items lost their sheen from wear and washing? Then check out our laundry whiteners. 

Dylon Ultra Whitener sachets can restore brilliant whiteness even at low temperatures. The specialist fabric whitener sachet is made of 100% naturally derived fibres and is free from microplastic fibres too. All you need to do is:

  • Place the sachet in the washing drum and add your laundry
  • Add laundry detergent as normal then start the normal wash cycle (it works even at low temperatures)
  • Remove the sachet and your clothes after the wash
  • Your whites will be noticeably whiter 

What will help me get my white clothes bright again?

So, how to get white clothes bright again? You can try one of the following techniques: 

Colour remover

If other colours have run into your white clothes, you can use a specialist colour remover to remove any stains. Our SOS Colour Run is the perfect product. Simply add the contents directly to your drum and wash on a long cycle at either 40 or 60°.

You can also use our laundry whiteners to restore your fabrics even at low temperatures. 

How to get red colour run out of white clothes

Oh no, disaster. This is the one we all fear. That stray red sock that goes in with a white wash and runs into your clothes.

But never fear, help is at hand. With Colour Run SOS, you can turn the clock back on most colour run disasters to have your whites looking whiter than white once again. All you need to do is:

  • Add the contents of both sachets directly to the drum.
  • Run a long wash cycle on either 40°C (synthetic mixes) or 60°C (cottons).
  • For top loading machines, choose the lowest water level that covers the garments. 

How to keep your clothes white

When it comes to white clothes, you want to wear them as much as you can but still keep them as white as possible. We recommend using a Colour Catcher to stop any potential runs in the wash, as well as a whitening powder to keep things dazzling white after every wash. 

Our Dylon Ultra Whitener is just the job.
