White jeans may look fabulous, but every single thing that gets on them becomes visible instantly. Stains can be especially tricky on white pants because, while a regular laundry cycle will remove most of the stain, any lingering remnants will still be easily visible to the eye. While bleach can sometimes cause unattractive spotting, there is a technique you can use to harness the power of bleach without worrying about spotting.
Things You'll Need
- Laundry stain pretreatment
- Laundry detergent with bleach
Cover the stained areas on the pants with a laundry stain pretreatment.
Rub the cloth on the pants together over the stain to allow the pretreatment to penetrate further. Place the pants into the washing machine, along with any other all-white garments that you need to wash.
Start the washing cycle but do not close the door. When the washer has filled with water, pour a capful of laundry detergent that contains bleach into the chamber. If you have a front-loading washing machine, pour the detergent into the bleach/detergent dispensary cavity.
Close the door of the washer and allow the cycle to run through. Dry as usual.
