I cant use bleach. Our water has to much iron in it. If I use bleach every thing turns ugly brownish. If I use the stuff my town gives out to keep the clothes sparkly white it eats holes in the cottons. :(. I wash my whites twice, once cold then hot. They are pretty white.
Always color safe! My sister lived with me for awhile and for the first time in my life I was able to buy GOOD expensive clothes. Not many but a few really nice classic pieces.
She decided her job would be laundry, you guessed it ! She ruined almost everything I owned with bleach!
Oh then she had nerve to hid my clothes from me! Until I had nothing left to wear! Grr!
