Regular readers will remember that a couple of weeks ago, I bought a bottle of Mrs. Stewart's Blueing. You know, for people who finally admit that their clothes aren't as white as they used to be. Well, I used it and I must say that I really didn't notice a difference. Maybe a tiny, tiny bit whiter, but no OH MY GOODNESS, LOOK HOW WHITE OUR SOCKS ARE moment. I was a little disappointed. Our clothes need some brightness!!
So, I have taken to adding the blueing to every load of whites. I put some cold water in a quart jar, add a few drops of blueing, add more cold water to fill the jar about half full, then add the blueing to my washer. I have a front loading washer, so I add some to the fabric softener dispenser, some to the bleach dispenser, and the rest I put in the soap dispenser.
I'll let you know how it goes.
