Guidance on How to Use Bleaching

Aug 17, 2007
Bleaching can be one of solutions to remove the stains. But bleaching the clothes also needs some instruction. In this article you will find very useful tips to bleach your garments. In this article you will find some tips on washing the wash and wear fabrics.

FOR HAND WASHING AND BLEACHING use the same materials and procedure. Be sure to rinse thoroughly and do not wring or twist the nylon while washing it. Hand washed garments should be bleached periodically. Soak them for thirty minutes in warm water containing two tablespoonfuls of household bleach for each gallon of water and follow this with a thorough rinsing.

FOR STUBBORN DISCOLORATION that is not corrected by the washing procedure just described, the following treatment is suggested for restoring the whiteness of nylon. First wash it thoroughly; then, to about one gallon of hot water (160 F.), in an enameled container, add one package of Rit color remover and stir it until it is completely dissolved. Place the wet garments in this solution immediately and, keeping the temperature at 160 F., stir them gently. If whiteness is restored after thirty minutes, remove them and rinse thoroughly in hot water. Otherwise leave them for another thirty minutes, then remove and rinse them. (Do not let the heat of the water exceed 160 F., or hard-to-remove wrinkles may be set in the nylon.)

IF THIS IS NOT EFFECTIVE, try step two: add to a gallon of warm water two tablespoonfuls of household bleach and two tablespoonfuls of a detergent. Soak the garments for about thirty minutes, stirring them occasionally. Then rinse them thoroughly with warm water, and, after the final rinse, immerse the garments in about a gallon of warm water containing a tablespoonful of one of the optical whiteners already mentioned.

FABRIC BLENDS WHICH INCLUDE NYLON are laundered as if they were made entirely of the other fiber unless the manufacturer has given special instructions.

WASH-AND-WEAR PLEATED SKIRTS and dresses containing Orion or Dacron fibers, if properly handled, emerge fresh and crisply creased after many washings. Usually the blend contains 50 per cent or more of Dacron or Orion fibers, which contribute their ability to retain heat-set pleats to the other fiber.

HAND WASHING PLEATS. Wash pleated clothing in warm water, following the directions given for hand washing nylon, Orion, and Dacron. Hot water and vigorous rubbing should be avoided. After a thorough rinse in warm water hang pleated dresses on non-staining hangers, with the zippers or other fastenings closed. Skirts should be suspended by the band on skirt hangers, or pinned in several places to keep the waistband straight Finger-press the seams and trimming and let the skirts drip dry.

IF THE MATERIAL IS HEAVY, or you wish to speed the drying process, roll the skirt into a tubular shape with the pleats parallel and, beginning at the waistband, squeeze the water out gently from waistband to hem. (Never wring or twist a pleated skirt.) Shake it out and hang it up to dry.

MACHINE-WASHING PLEATS. While hand washing is best, some pleated clothing can be washed in a machine, and the guide here will be the manufacturer's label. Again, be sure that the water is just warm and make the washing cycle from three to five minutes. All water-extraction cycles should be omitted. Rinse thoroughly and follow with the drying procedure outlined for hand washing.

TO PRESS PLEATS. If, after a number of washings, it seems desirable to press a pleated garment, use a steam iron or a dry iron set for synthetics or rayon. Carefully align the pleats and press them on the reverse side, using a damp press cloth. Allow each area pressed to cool before handling it or lifting it from the ironing board. Pleated garments of Orion and Dacron blends can be dry cleaned too, and repleated by the dry cleaner.

When hand wash and bleach it should be done periodically. Stubborn discoloration can be soaked using hot water. For hand washing, wash and rinse the materials in warm water. For the heavy materials you can hang them to dry.
