My grandmother told me this one and it is true. If you hang your clothes and leave them over night and there is an early morning frost you want to see just how much whiter your whites get may have happened to you alread and you never even noticed. There is something about frost that really whitens up your laundry without having to add rotting bleaches to your clothes neat eh. Does anyone else have a tale from a wise grand parent like this one?

my grandmother used sour milk-it also whitened. they hung it up or laid it on the grass to soak in. it did work but..i wonder about the smell.. i had never heard the frost one-i'll have to remember that

No I did not realise this but it is true as when we lived in the country side we had a lot of frost in the mornings and this use to happen. I cannot think of any tales that my grandmotehr used to tell me just now but thank you for your discussion.

I never tried this one, but my grandma thought me that the sun has the same effect. WHen she had some thing with a stain that didn't seem to go away , she would rinse it, apply some soap, and leave it in the sun for a bit. Then she would wash normally. It seemed to work. I haven't tried this in quite a while but did some years back with some baby clothes when my kids were young and it worked.
