Banish Bleach Stains from Your Towels

Have you ever washed and dried a load of bath towels—without a drop of bleach–then discovered a few random white splotches on them? (It can happen with colored sheets too!) You’re probably bleaching them without even realizing it. You see, many products we use in the bathroom, from shower cleaners to toothpaste to acne medication, contain bleaching agents. When you transfer these products from your hands to fabric, and the fabric interacts with water, the material will stain.

To avoid ruining new towels, inspect the bathroom for sneaky bleachers. Anything that claims to whiten, brighten, or disinfect or that contains benzoyl peroxide, hydrogen peroxide, sodium perborate, sodium percarbonate, or chlorine could be a culprit. Once you find the offenders, remember to wash your hands thoroughly after using them and to store colored towels somewhere safe from inadvertent spills and splashes.

    Yes, I brushed my teeth and had on a brand new peach colored blouse. Some toothpaste dropped on it and ruined my new blouse. Now I never brush my teeth with a top on.
