Tired in using bleach and ruining your laundry because of the chemical substances it contains? Well, I am, because my towels get a yellowish tint after using bleach. The thing is that you can’t use only bleach when it comes to washing your towels and whites, because they are very demanding, and every tiny stain is seen and the detergent isn’t powerful enough to remove them.

The great thing is that I found the perfect natural substitute to bleach your whites without ruining them!


  • hot water
  • 1 cup of laundry powder
  • 1 cup of dish powder soap
  • 1 cup of bleach or ½ cup of borax

Leave the laundry to soak in this solution overnight for best results. This way, this homemade bleach will be very effective. Now, rinse your clothes in warm water, and then put them in the washer to the normal white cycle.
