Dirty Little Secrets - How To Get Your Dirty Whites Clean Again!

Like most moms we want our families to look their best. We feel a sense of pride when our boys leave the house each morning freshly scrubbed, neat and tidy. By the time they come home after school they are usually sloppy, dirty and stained. The worst offenders are their white socks, or should we say their once white socks. Horrifying! No matter what we did they never seemed to come clean again. We set out on a mission to find out what other parents do to keep their kid's socks white.

Here is what we found:

Wash the really dirty whites, like socks, separately from your other whites to keep them from graying the cleaner whites.

Soak the socks in dishwasher detergent for at least 2 hours before washing and bleaching socks. We found this also really helped our husbands white undershirts as well. It helped remove those stubborn deodorant stains. We used a 1/2 cup in our washing machine and hot water.Wash the socks and then re wash and bleach them. This helps the dirt from redepositing on your clean socks. We were so pleased with how good the boys socks looked! Even if it only last a few fleeting moments.But, the best and easiest new trick we learned... ...just buy black socks!
