We all hate when our white laundry turns gray, and we keep trying to find a way to remove stains from them and restore their original white color.
Apparently, an ordinary aspirin pill can be as effective as commercial stain removing agents and bleaches.
This is all you need to do:
You should add five300 mg aspirin tablets in 2 gallons of hot water and leave them to dissolve. To do this quickly and help them act faster, you can crush the pills. Then, soak your white laundry in the solution, and leave them thus overnight.
In the morning, place the clothes in the washing machine, add a few aspirin pills again, and wash them as usually.
Believe it or not, the effects will leave you speechless! This procedure will not damage the fabrics, but it will remove dirt, unlike commercial bleaches. Try it and you will definitely wear your white clothes more often! They will look fresh and new again!
No matter how much you strive to properly wash white laundry, sometimes it just sneaks up on you: the dreaded grayness. And once it’s there, clothes seem to become grayer and grayer with every wash. As it turns out, there’s a secret weapon in your medicine cabinet that helps to eliminate this problem.
Grab five 325mg aspirin tablets and let them dissolve in 2 gallons of hot water. You can also break up the tablets so that they dissolve more quickly.

Now put your grayish garments into the solution and let them soak for eight hours, or simply overnight. Make sure all of your clothes are completely submerged in the water. Alternatively, you can also choose to toss the aspirin tablets into the washing machine, but letting them dissolve first is a better tactic.
After eight hours either remove your laundry and dry it, or if you prefer, run it through a normal cycle in the washing machine. In addition to fighting off grayness, aspirin also works to help remove stains!

If you want to remove bloodstains, however, it’s necessary that you first dissolve the aspirin in cold water before soaking the affected garments for two hours. Never attempt to remove bloodstains with hot water. The protein in the blood will clot making the stain even more difficult to remove.
Aspirin contains a weak acid that produces great effects. There’s no need to buy overpriced, specialty cleaning products if you have a couple of tablets in your medicine cabinet!
