It’s a set of six dinner napkins. The only problem is, they had some stains and were very yellow looking. I decided, at a quarter each, I would take my chances and buy them anyway!
I figured bleach would probably bring out the stains, but I wanted to make sure they came out as white as possible, so I bought a box of this Rit Whitener and Brightener..you find it in aisle with dye…it was in my laundry aisle at Walmart.
This stuff is specifically made for brightening dingy whites and colored fabrics. It doesn’t have bleach, so it’s totally safe for your colored clothes. I just wanted to whiten my napkins, so I used it in conjunction with some bleach. I filled the washer with pretty hot water, added a half a pack of the Rit Whitener and a cup of bleach. I let it the napkins soak in the washer for about 10 –15 minutes before I let them wash.
This is what I got…..
Every stain came out and the napkins are now a BRIGHT white!
I ironed them out and stacked them up and they’re ready for company! The stains in these looked as if they had been there for a while, so I’m sure it would work great on newly acquired stains.
Here they are all ironed and ready for company! Don’t cha just love the little inset trim?! It’s what sold me to try to get the stains all out!
I will definitely be stocking up on that Rit Whitener and Brightener…what a great find!
I probably won’t be able to comment back to your comments this week…we’re taking some day trips and I’ll be away from my computer for most of the week…just know I love you guys!!!
Have a great day!
