So to buy us some time to test out new brands and hopefully find something my husband will like, I decided I needed to try to revive the old stash of BVD shirts. The only problem? Nothing I did helped. Not bleach, hot water, lots of detergent.... nothing. You can see how dingy the shirts look in comparison with a white pillowcase below.
So here's what I did:
First, I filled up the machine only to about half-way, where it was just covering the shirts with hot water. Then I added a big soup-pot full of boiling water from the stove to make sure the water was ultra hot.
Then I added:
-3 scoops of Norwex laundry detergent
-1 cup regular homemade laundry detergent (not pictured)
-1 scoop oxy-clean (not pictured)
-1 cup bleach
-1 cup Borax
-3 dishwashing soap pods (I would have used 1/2 cup regular dishwashing soap)
The result? I kept one shirt unwashed so you could see the difference.
