Super White Curtains

I was recently asked to launder some net curtains which, quite frankly, had not only seen better days but I would have put straight into the trash. I used to buy a special product to produce white curtains, but since this is expensive and I rarely need to use it for my own curtains since they are laundered regularly, I did not have any. Bleach was also a no-no. In the United Kingdom there is a product called "Vanish" which has a "pink" label powder. I used just two scoops of this product and WOW! Get the sunglasses. Are the nets white or are they WHITE!!!!!! So if you are able to obtain this product, it is a little expensive to buy first off but it lasts and lasts since you only use it when you really need it, you could try this on tired nets. Much cheaper than having to replace them.

I've never heard of that product, but I'm not in the UK. Does the label list the active ingredient? I wonder if it's available here under another brand name.

It looks like it may work on the same principle as what we here in the States call OxyClean. I have used OxyClean and wasn't exactly thrilled with the results, I do use it for my carpets if I have a stain as a pre-soak. Here is a link to the product that list the ingredients. I hope it works correctly..lol Vanish: http://www.ocado.com/webshop/getProductDetails.do?sku=31726011&parentContainer=000121549 OxyClean: http://www.greatcleaners.com/versatile.html
