I’ve used Clorox bleach to clean my white t-shirts, but I’ve noticed yellow stains after washing them. I do my laundry at a neighborhood laundry that has front-loading machines. I dilute the bleach with a gallon of water and add it after the water has gone into the machine for the wash cycle but still get the yellow spots. Is there any way to remove them? I don’t think non-chlorine bleach is as effective on white t-shirts.
It’s a little difficult to be sure what the likely cause is without seeing the “yellow stains.” Here are some potential causes/solutions for you to consider:
Finally, at home you might try a quick soak (1/2 to 1 hour) for one of the shirts in an oxygen bleach like our Clorox 2® Stain Remover & Color Booster to see if you can help replace the fabric brighteners that the liquid bleach likely destroyed. Rinse and air-dry to see if it has any effect before doing a large number of items.
