How to keep your whites looking bright

Raise your hand if white clothes are your go-to in the summer! 🙋🏾‍♀️🙋🏿‍♂️🙋🏻‍♀️ You can take your white pieces to the next level with a bit of Supersalt, our oxygen brightener. Supersalt is not bleach—it's a color-safe oxygen booster that can be used to brighten greying or yellowing whites. Just add a tablespoon into the drum along with your detergent, and wash as you normally would.

If you think your garment needs a little more TLC, you can pre-soak with Supersalt the night before. Dissolve 1/2 tbsp in a bucket of warm water, submerge overnight and wash as normal the next day.

If there's a specific stain your targeting, rather than a need for overall brightening, you can also stain treat with Supersalt! Just wet the stained area, cover the stain with a light layer of Supersalt, and let it sit for 15 minutes. It will become a paste, which you can work into the stain using an old toothbrush. Afterwards, wash as normal.
