How to Clean White Towels Without Bleach – The Best Natural Ways

Warm bath + fluffy white towel = sheer luxury. But how do you keep those towels fluffy and white? You may want to reach for the bleach, which whitens and disinfects. However, over time, bleach can weaken the fibres and make your towels less absorbent. It can also cause yellowing of the fabric. Then there’s the fact that household chlorine bleach is a pretty harsh chemical that can burn your skin and more.

So what is the alternative? We reached out to Sheryn Saab, founder of Toronto-based online linen company envello, providers of luxurious home textiles without the big price tag or harm to the environment. Sheryn recommends using biodegradable detergents that are free of phosphates and nitrates, which can harm our waterways. In addition, she has these tips on how to clean white towels without bleach.
