How Do You Bleach Sheets Safely?


Bleaching your sheets safely is a very simple process that takes a minimal amount of time and effort. In order to bleach your sheets and get them looking perfectly clean, you need some laundry detergent, bleach, water and a washing machine.

  1. Add detergent and water to the washing machine

    Let your washing machine start to fill up with water. Pour in some laundry detergent.

  2. Pour in bleach, and start wash cycle

    If your washing machine has no bleach dispenser, pour 1/2 cup of the bleach into the detergent and water mixture, and allow the wash cycle to start. For optimal results, start the wash cycle first, and wait for about 5 minutes before adding the bleach. If you have a high-efficiency washing machine or other machine with a bleach dispenser, fill the dispenser to the maximum fill line with bleach.

  3. Add the sheets

    After the wash cycle begins, add the sheets you want to bleach to the mixture of detergent, water and bleach in the machine. Close your washing machine and allow it to finish the cycle as usual.

  4. Dry the sheets

    Allow the sheets to dry before using them again. Your sheets should now be safely and effectively bleached.
