This trick will make your sheets extra white

Get your summer sheets looking fresh as a daisy with this blueing powder!

Now we’re getting some sunnier days, I’ve dug out my sheets to give them a nice whitening treatment.

They were all a bit yellow after being in storage, so I washed them with this powder and threw them in the sun for some extra brightening.

Blueing Powder

  • Mix 3 cups baking soda with ½ tsp Prussian Blue pigment (available at art stores).

  • Use 1 tsp of this mix in your final rinse, making sure the bowl is full before adding.
