Mrs. Stewart's Bluing Review: Used This Liquid In My Laundry For Years

by Corwin

Corwin shared her Mrs. Stewart's bluing review with me.

Corwin says:

I have used this bluing for about 8 or 9 years on my whites in the final rinse.

I don't use it every wash (maybe I should), and some items like t-shirts still gray in about 6 to 9 months.

I use it on white cotton bedspreads, and one that is a very, very old one seems to hold its whiteness, but another one has increasing yellowing mainly on the top/head areas that I can't seem to get out.

I wish there was something to get that yellowing stain out. I know it was NOT caused by the bluing, but probably body oils, etc.

I've used it on blue jeans when they are "newish," at about 3 or 4 times recommended strength, and it seems to keep them a better looking color longer than ones I don't wash with bluing.

When the jeans start to show wear (light surface wear pattens) I try to re-dye them with a dye like Rit in a dark Navy to rejuvenate them.

Of course the best preventative to do for care of jeans is to ALWAYS turn them inside out for washing & drying.

Taylor says:

Best whitening stuff I've ever used
by: Karilee Anderson

Best whitening stuff I've ever used. Better than Oxiclean now that it seems things just aren't as good as they used to be? Mrs. Stewarts has never changed, a reliable product that not only works for laundry, also in pools, cleans crystal and glass, keeps jeans looking new and algae out of my fountain.

Can you hand wash your white shirts after using bluing liquid?
by: Anonymous

I just wanted to know if you let the white clothes soak in the blueing or just dip it in? More importantly, how do you hand wash them after you blue them because I am without a very missed washing machine at this time.

Please explain it to me, because I have looked on the net everywhere and cannot find one thing about how to do it properly with hand washing.
