What needs to be done?

Don't get frustrated if your favorite clothes have acquired a yellow or gray shade. Acetylsalicylic acid can help you deal with the problem. Dissolve 5 tablets in 8 liters of water, then soak the clothes overnight or for 5-6 hours. After that, rewash in a washing machine as usual.

Aspirin will also put your colored linen in order. In this case, there is no need for a solution. Place your clothes in the washing machine, add 2 tablets and wash.

You will be amazed at the results! White clothes become white, colored clothes become bright and rich in color again.

Here is a visual explanation.

We'd like to clarify that this method is suitable for natural and synthetic fabrics. The essence of the action is that acetylsalicylic acid destroys protein molecules. If you draw an analogy, these tablets influence the blood the same way by diluting it.

The acetylsalicylic acid will also help remove blood stains from clothes. The rules are the same as with white clothes but in this case, the water should be cold, otherwise, the blood will stick deeper into the fabric.

A great method for everyone who has to do laundry! Most importantly, it helps you get rid of the need to buy expensive stain removers, helping you to save money!
