Mrs. Stewart's Bluing Review: Used This Liquid In My Laundry For Years
Corwin shared her Mrs. Stewart's bluing review with me.
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.
Thanks for your review of Mrs. Stewart's bluing Corwin.
