How I Keep White Bed Linens And Towels White

This is a sponsored Post.

After years and years of buying colored towels and linens, we decided to switch to white. Nothing gives a room that classic look like white bed linens and towels. I love soft, fluffy, absorbent, pure cotton, thick, large, white towels. Some may think that white is impractical especially when there are children in the house, but I disagree. I find that white linens are so much easier to clean and when you have to buy more, white is just about the easiest color to match.

Keeping white bed linens and towels clean is as simple as throwing them in the washing machine with bleach and hot water. I always use regular Clorox-brand bleach, but they recently updated their formula. The new formula is called Clorox® Regular Bleach2 with CloroMax™ Technology. Not only does this new product disinfect and sanitize like regular bleach, it also utilizes patented CloroMax™ Technology polymers to form a protective barrier on the linens, making them more resistant to stains and easier to clean in the future.

This new formula protects surfaces† and keeps my whites whiter longer*, so they do not fade like bed linens of other hues. This actually makes my whites easier to care for than their colored counterparts because it’s way harder to restore a faded color than  to maintain a crisp white using this product.

Bleaching white bath towels is also an excellent way to get rid of that stinky towel smell that sometimes seems near impossible to get rid of. I follow the same procedure as above: toss the towels in the washer with hot water and Clorox® Regular Bleach2 with CloroMax™ Technology. Towels get the benefit of the protective CloroMax™ barrier as well, so they get easier and easier to clean as I wash them.

The new Clorox® Regular Bleach2 with CloroMax™ Technology will replace Clorox® Regular-Bleach₁  in most stores late September, early October 2017. I admit I was a little leery that they changed the formula of such an effective product at first, but it’s a change for the better. The new formula is certified to kill 49 different germs, up from 45 for the previous product. It also continues to eliminate mold, mildew, and associated stains with aplomb, so no need to worry on that front! Best of all, it isn’t any more expensive than the bleach I used to buy.

Specific dilution directions for various purposes have changed slightly, but Clorox® Regular Bleach2 with CloroMax™ Technology deserves the same trust as its predecessor. Honestly, there is really no reason to shy away from white bed linens and towels because of how difficult they can be to clean. With a little hot water and Clorox® Regular Bleach2 with CloroMax™ Technology, you can keep them a nice bright white for years to come!
