I use MelaBrite. It's a great alternative to bleach because it doesn't have any harsh chemicals and works better than any brand I found in stores.

I've used a pre-wash method. I send the clothes through a pre-rinse cycle with just a little soap detergent, just to get the loose dirt and such off. Then I run a full cycle with detergent and clorox. I also try to keep the really dirty socks (like my hubby's) out of my pretty whites wash, and wash them their own.

Soak them for awhile in clorox bleach. Then wash.

Here's a really good tip for your whites.....,spray them with scotchguard before wearing them, this helps prevent bad soiling/stains. You need to reapply the scotchguard after every wash though...it really works well!!!

add a little baking soda to the wash load, that seems to do the trick.

Everytime I use my mom's washer I have no problem washing whites in a normal cycle without bleach! I guess her washer does magic. Anytime I wash anywhere else....I use bleach and it barely gets the stains out...especailly when they are food stains! But I'll use some of your advice next time i have stained whites!

I use bleach too, but it seems that once the kids spill taco, or wear their socks out into the yard, nothing will clean it. Nothing cleans it, you just gotta throw them out and buy new.

I use Shout Gel Scrub on the stains and then I wash them with bleach. Use the smallest load setting on your washer so that the proportion of bleach is greater in relation to water and clothing.

we just use laundry soap and brush them clean. really hand washing, machine washing is not enough to get the whites as clean as you like, it is better to brush it.
