Get your yellowing cotton blouse back to white again

Yellowing happens when a white garment is exposed to direct sunlight for a long time (the UV from the sunlight degrades the brightener in the fabric).

To reverse this, try rewashing in detergent containing optical brighteners or brightening agents, such as Ariel, within a full load using the recommended dose and at the hottest temperature on the label.

f you hang your washing on the line, keep the whites away from direct sunlight and take inside as soon as they’re dry.
