Dingy Whites

In the heat down south, whites don't stay white for long.  Even with weekly blueing, bleach and lemon treatments, they still end up grey.  My daughter's $80 white bra was that nasty grey.  Everything I tried helped.  It was a much lighter shade of grey but still not the brilliant white she loved.

Mom, the super seamstress to the rescue!

I found some fabric dye specifically made for poly fabrics.  A very deep blue. I thought it would be beautiful.  A pot of boiling water, the lid and the kitchen timer.

She now has a beautiful, indigo colored bra that she will get lots of wear out of and no embodiment when a strap peeks out.  We are all happy that $80 didn't get thrown in the garbage.


  1. You are talented and creative aren't you, Rose. Thanks for the great idea.
