Why is my bedding look like it is going yellow?
Why does bedding go yellow?
Even though you keep your bedding clean it can still go yellow due to a couple factors which can happen over a period time, these include:Sweat,body products(lotion,perfumes)bodily fluids,skin oils and other topical skin products.
So what do we recommend if your sheets are turning yellow?
Bleach may seem like a quick and easy solution to get rid of those yellow stains but we wouldn't recommend our customers using bleach on their bedding as this may either contribute to the discoloration due to the way that it can oxidize and reacts to the fluids in the bedding, but can also contribute to the breakdown of the fibers in the bedding.
The best trick to minimizing and getting rid of those yellow stains is all natural Sunlight ,which helps brighten the sheets ,so if at all possible hang them outside on a dry sunny day.
Have you also tried this natural home remedy with things that you already have in your kitchen
A 1/2 cup of baking soda is a natural and safe alternative to bleach.You can mix it directly into your wash along with your preferred detergent.Instead of a traditional fabric softener, we recommend using a 1/2 cup of vinegar as an alternative. Vinegar is incredibly effective at cutting through oils and grease that have been trapped in the fibers of your bed sheets.
Lastly we recommend following the manufacturer's instructions and this information is generally found on the product or on the packaging.
