I soak them first in napisan

Sensitive oxy and asda non bio on the longest 40 degree wash works for us.

You might not need the napisan, just wash them with bio detergent (not "colour" detergent, powder is better than liquid) with only white things and hang them to dry in the sunshine (ha ha, not really the time of year for that!), they should improve a lot.

To keep them really white, you're best to always wash whites seperately to colours or darks.

Get some glowhite (sheets that go in with normal detergent)

and never wash above 40.

Meplus are glowhite sheets ok for baby skin? I might well buy some!

I've never had a problem with them. and DD and DH have eczema. I've used them from day 1.

If your unsure use soda crystals

Another vote for Napisan

Not that easy at this time of year but hanging outside on a sunny day works wonders to bleach whites and remove stains.

One of the many wonderful things my nan taught me was to never wash whites above 40 cos it will make them grey.

she has never been wrong about anything else so I don't see this being wrong.

a 90 wash will do desperate things to whites, colours and modern fabric. Basically only good for towels is 90.
