When I worked in a kitchen with white cotton aprons and
polyester/cotton, I could send them to installation laundry with any
and every kind of food stain one can imagine. They ALWAYS got them
out. I ALWAYS got my whites back gleaming.
They say you can't get the strength of soap they use because it is too
caustic. I'm sure they didn't use a chlorine bleach too, because
chlorine eats cotton over time.
Does anyone know where to get the soap they use, perhaps through
another avenue? My whites are on my freaking nerves! :-@
1. Ask your husband what he recommends.
2. Detergents generally ain't what they used to be.
3. a. HOT water and Bleach can do a lot.
b. Powder is better than liquid.

My Gramma was born in 1879, and came West on a stagecoach. She taught
me about bluing, and how to make lye soap from wood ashes and tallow.
She died in 1982, just short of her 103d birthday. No metrosexual,

Deer Martha Stewart,
Ok, I'll be honest. It's not shirts, it's the dishtowels. I cannot buy
the flowery kind (sexuality redemption?). I like the plain white bar
towels. I feel the white adds a detail that says clean. But, they're
about $10 for 10 towels when they have them (which seems to be about
once a year).
So, you can see my dilemma. They only stay clean for about 3 or 4
washings, and with all the dishes and stuff, it's just a never ending
Seeking soapy solutions.
Ah, dishtowels! I have about 300 dishtowels, mostly plain made from
the plain white commercial towel fabric. I might go through 20-25
towels weekly. A hot bleach Tide removes any stains, brightens and
sanitizes the towels. Blindfolded, I think I can fold several dozen
in a minute or two.

Make nice-nice with one of the waitstaff at a local restautant.
Have them get you five towels. Each week return the soiled towels
for clean ones. Do not tell the manager since they probably pay by
