Whites whiter than white

How do you keep yours looking white??!

I wash everything I can on a hot wash, use oxy white, colour catchers when anything with a smidge of colour goes in (like a coloured trim on white underwear), never wash socks in the load but everything turns grey fairly sharpish.

Any top tips??

Use Persil and try and get on the line outside where possible, helps. A guy who mended our washing machine recommended this and it works quite well.

All plain white vests and t shirts I soak in bleach for an hour. They look as good as new.

I use half a dose of Bio washing powder or liquid + scoop Oxywhite, 50° wash. I think the greyish colour is build up of washing product.
Do a regular 60° service wash on your machine too.
