In a tub or large sink, mix a solution of warm water and oxygen-based bleach. Use approximately 1/4 cup of bleach for every gallon of water.
Completely submerge your yellowing clothes and laundry in the tub or sink of water and bleach. It is crucial to ensure that all items are completely submerged to achieve the best results from this process. Leave the garments to soak in the water and bleach for 24 hours.
After soaking for 24 hours, place the laundry in your regular washing machine. Wash as normal. During the rinse cycle, add 1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar to the water.
