How to Wash and Care for White Clothes

Wash Regular Whites

  • 1. Place white clothes labeled for warm-water washing in a machine. For instance, a cotton shirt and linen blouse can be washed at the same time. Set the machine on warm and normal or gentle operation.
  • 2. Add Shower detergent powder. In case of stains pre-treat with detergent paste.
  • 3. If you have a dryer, dry cottons on high and synthetics on medium or low. You can place them all together in the dryer and take the synthetics out as soon as they are done. Or you can hang the clothes outside to dry naturally.

Washing Delicate Whites

  • 1. Gather delicate white items, such as sheer blouses, shirts or undergarments.
  • 2. Review the care labels to make see whether they should be washed in washing machine or hand washing is suggested, as well as the recommended wash temperature and drying method.
  • 3. If you use Machine wash it should be in cold water. Adjust the water level and set the machine for gentle or delicate.
  • 4. Hand-wash delicate undergarments or items specifically labeled "hand-wash only." Dilute a small amount of Shower Detergent in a tub or bucket of cold water, and then soak and rinse your clothes under running water.

Wash White Towels, Sheets and Socks

  • 1. Gather white towels, sheets and socks that can tolerate hot washing. Check the labels if you're not sure.
  • 2. Wash items that are prone to mildew, fungus and mites in hot water. Adjust your water level for the correct volume and set the machine for normal operation.
  • 3. Add shower Detergent Powder. In case of stains, soak in a solution of warm water and detergent paste. If you have a dryer, dry all of these items on high heat, or dry the sheets separately if you don't want excess towel lint on them. Alternatively you can hang the clothes outside to let them dry naturally.


  • Try adding 240ml of white vinegar to the washing machine's rinse cycle to keep your clothes stay white.
  • Dry white clothing and fabrics outside for the UV rays to brighten the garment.
