Wait—Have We Been Washing Our Whites All Wrong?

With Labor Day crossed off the calendar, you might be thinking about how to get those crisp summer whites back to their best shade before you put them away for the season. Or maybe, like me, you’re just catching up on laundry after a busy week (I, for one, have been known to wear my white jeans deep into the winter). Either way, we all know the best way to wash whites is to separate them from colors, use hot water, and add bleach, right?

Well…not quite. Turns out that last step might be making your whites look even dingier.
