Do note that this process is recommended for treating durable fibers, such as cotton, linen, and some synthetic materials, and The Laundress Bleach Alternative should not be used on silks, woolens, or leathers.
I love The laundress bleach alternative! It has such a subtle beautiful scent. I don’t like any overpowering scent on my linens. Here in Canada we also have Nellie’s. They have a really good bleach alternative but it is missing that amazing scent. 🙁 A bit cheaper though. Great post. I am working towards all white linens.
Apply The Laundress Stain Solution and The Laundress All-Purpose Bleach Alternative directly to the discolored underarm areas.
Pour hot water onto the mixture to dissolve and activate the beads in the bleach alternative.
Work the solution into the fabric with a small brush (or toothbrush!).
Pre-soak the garment in a bath of hot water and The Laundress Bleach Alternative for at least one hour.
If the stain isn’t fully removed once the soaking is completed, don’t sweat it. It often takes two to three tries before complete removal.
Once satisfied, finish by laundering as normal. (We recommend this specialty detergent designed especially for your whites.)
