I know many of you may come from different schools of thought, but my parents, especially my mother, taught me the importance of separating whites and colors. I find maintaining the constant battle for cleanliness with whites tremendously challenging. The biggest battles for me are dinginess and collar ring. I usually use an enzymatic stain stick on my collars, which does the trick usually but it seems like the collar still slowly deteriorates. Any suggestions? I know it's important to launder shirts as quickly as possible after wearing to prevent the stain from setting. I don't have particularly oily skin and I do practice good hygiene - but is there anything I can do to prevent my neck from staining the color in the first place? T-shirts and towels tend to get dingy, and I know it's possible to reverse this, but I have tried with little success some remedies I have found online. Do you guys have any experience? I just hate how my perfectly functional t-shirts and towels tend to look unattractively grey after a few months of repeated wearing/use and washing. I don't like using chlorine bleach as it's harsh on fabric and doesn't usually produce the results I want. Has anyone else found whiteners with better success? http://www.onegoodthingbyjillee.com/2013/06/miracle-laundry-whitening-solution-best-of-jillee.html I have seen the dish washing detergent thing suggested multiple places. Does this really work?
