A common question that is asked is for tips on how to get white clothes/fabrics back to white (they can often go grey/yellow, maybe something to do with the water?). Some suggestions from mums are: Use Persil Power Gel - it really does work!! Expensive but worth it....... 2 table spoons of baking powder will do the job. I personally would never use clorox cause it turned my whites yellowish I put a bit of bleach in the washer while it is filling up and then soap and swish it around. White vinegar also helps Never used clorox after while the white changes to yellow use backing whote hard soap u can find it on supermarket Clorox or vanish Pop a capful of neat bleach in your water. Vanish spray. I put my whites in the sink and spray the whole thing and keep doing it to all whites then put in washong machine or alternatively put in a bucket with bleach and water and soak for a few minutes and that shud work too. Vanish really helped. Reduce the temperature of the water used for a longer term solution.
