    I love white jeans but don’t always wear them for the same reason – they get dirty easily. Plus I have a toddler who likes to touch everything in sight and wipe her hands on mom. Thanks for the tips.

    Me too loves to wear white jeans but only once and occasionally because as what Samantha says, they easily get dirty. I’ll take note of your tips. Thanks for sharing Ms. Brigitt and hope to hear more from you!

    I like using hydrogen peroxide in my laundry to keep my white looking fresh. Also works great on stains (especially blood or proteins) on light colored fabrics.

    My daughter’s white jean capri has a stain(which my guess is a tea stain), I don’t know how to take it off. Any ideas? Also, I have a white Bebe top, I have hand washed it, dried it in the sun, dry cleaned it few times, washed in washing machine with other whites and air dried it, it still does not look white the way I bought it. It is dirty white. The material is 78%silk 22%spandex. I would try anything at this point.

    Bhavana Mittal, try lemon juice & salt on the stains, letting it dry in the sun. May take a few tries, but it should help. Also, hydrogen peroxide should whiten up the top, pour about a cup or so in with the wash and wash as you would normally would. Hope this helps.
