you don't like to use whitening agents for your white clothes to help the environment...,, then here is my suggestion and i am doing this with my undershirt and white polo shirts, and uniforms. try to harvest averrhoa bilimbi also known as cucumber tree or "kamias" here in the philippines. extract the juice or rub it directly on the white clothes

Hi Ifa!. I usually never used whitening agent like bleach. I just wash it separately with others color cloth. Its will be good if we wash it as soon as possible to avoid the stain got deeper into the fabric. If the stain can go easily I usually use citric acid plus detergent and soaking it an hours or two.

hi ifa if you use detergents then surely you can use clorox two which is supposed to be safe for the environment. its gentle but it gets the stains out and leaves white clothes white. the thing is to always rinse clothes thorougly in your automatic washer so nothing but clean is in your clothes, hanging them in the sun also makes them get whiter too.
