How to Get the Yellow Color From White Clothes


Keeping your whites as bright as they can be is a priority, whether it be your bedding, towels or clothing. When white clothing gets yellow stains from sweat or other elements, you can whiten the stains naturally and safely. With just a few kitchen ingredients, lifting yellow stains off of your whites doesn't have to be a headache.

Things You'll Need

  • Knife
  • 2 fresh lemons
  • Hand juicer
  • 20-oz spray bottle
  • 6 tbsp. white vinegar
  • Fresh water
  • Cut and juice the lemons thoroughly with the hand juicer and save the juice.

  • Add the juice with the vinegar to the plastic bottle.

  • Fill the bottle the rest of the way with fresh water. Seal the bottle and shake it vigorously for approximately 60 seconds.

  • Wash the stained clothing in hot water with a 1/4 capful of bleach.

  • Hang the stained white clothing outdoors on a clothesline.

  • Spray the areas of the yellow stains with the prepared solution, making sure to saturate the fabric with it.

  • Allow the clothing to dry naturally in full sunlight for a day.
