Wash white clothes separately from colored clothes. Also, add some bleach - to keep them white.

Separate white owner from clothing and resume wash of both
using separate machines. No bleach. They're white enough.

Wash them in pure sea water or ocean water. Then rinse in fresh water. The phosphate is sea water is great for brightening your tropical whites.

Always wash them separately from colored clothing, and don t use bleach. Chlorine bleach can end up turning white clothes yellow. You should also store white clothes separately so you can more easily avoid friction stains.

NOT with bleach. Many white clothes are actually DYED WHITE, and bleach simply removes the dye, leaving the clothes pale grey or yellow

If pure cotton use a little bleach to keep them bright.

I am not sure what colour white clothes fade to. There is nothing paler than white.

Throw in a BRIGHT RED OR YELLOW NEVER WASHED cloth ( a cloth like what might be used to clean a chalk board...I forget the name of the material) While I suggest other bright colors, red works the best.
From that point on, all you wish for is faster FADING.
