The Essential Step-by-Step Guide to Whitening Your Whites
The story's always the same: I buy the perfect white dress or the crispest pair of white jeans, and the instant I set foot outside, it's as if all the stains have found a new place to hang out. This year, I'd given up on the prospect of wearing my now-dingy whites — until I tried a few tricks (one of which involved a lemon and my fire escape) that actually managed to work.
If you've been determined to wear only the whitest of whites all year long (because we all know the no-white-after-Labor-Day rule is a lie propagated by LBDs) but now they're looking a little dull, let this eight-step garment care guide brighten the way. Not every white tee in your closet needs the complete workup, so figure out what's doable for you.
