I first learned about No More Yellow from a friend who works in food service at a school and wears white uniforms.
She uses this product to keep her uniforms white, using it on every third wash as it is not needed to be used every week to maintain the whiteness.
The No More Yellow laundry powder is designed for use in keeping white clothing from taking on a dingy look due to hard water.
Although we do not have an issue with hard water I have used this product to wash white shirts and under shirts which had yellow under arm stains and stains on the collars due to perspiration.
It is definitely a terrific whitener, and it does help with the yellow perspiration stains, but it is not a substitute for pretreating food and drink stains. You still need to address such stains as normal.
For pretreating these things I usually use ZOUT. I figured if it works well for the variety of stains my friend gets on her uniforms it would work for me as well.
I have found that No More Yellow is also great for addressing white socks that you would never believe were ever white when they went into the washer!
Also note that this is for garments that are purely white, i.e. if there is any embroidery such as your name in a different color you can count on it being white washed. I discovered this the hard way.
I was able to purchase this product at a hardware store and I know it is available on line, but you probably will not find it in your local grocery store.
Thanks so much for sharing this review of this whitener and detergent with me.
I did a little more research on this product once you brought it to my attention, and it is designed to remove yellowing from white fabric caused by rust and iron, as well as hard water.
In addition, it can be used to remove dye stains from white fabrics, such as those that have been mistakenly washed with a colored item.
I would love to hear from even more people who've used this product, sharing how it worked for you. You can share your reviews here.
I already had good luck using the Wash Away pretreater for laundry stains (coffee, tea, and soda to name a few) on both white and non white clothing, so I decided to try the No More Yellow Product for some of my white laundry.
I am amazed at what a difference this product has made in the brightness of our white T shirts, shirts, and slacks.
It is money well spent, and like others have noted you do not need to use it each time you do a load of whites to appreciate the effect.
In fact one of my co workers asked me if I had bought some new shirts after I used this product.
When it comes to white laundry Whink No More Yellow is great for washing my white (hospital) uniforms.
It is the best product for keeping them white.
I use it on every 4th wash to keep them really white.
I also wash white T shirts, denims, and undershirts with this product.
My only caution is that you do not let any one help with the sorting of laundry as this is a very powerful product that will take all color out of any garment that is not 100% white.
This product is definitely a great addition to the laundry room.
For those weeks when I don't use the Whink or for times when I have food or drink stains to contend with, I use detergent (ERA, Wisk, or Tide) and BIZ or Oxi Clean as a booster to the wash.
BIZ and Oxi Clean are great products for white and colored clothing, especially when you are dealing with stains.
Thanks so much for sharing this review Jean.
This is a product I don't think a lot of people know about, but if you've got lots of white laundry to do (as it sounds like you do because of your work uniforms) it sounds like something that people may really need to try.
