Effective methods to whiten clothes with Aspirin
Aspirin will whiten your clothes at home with a hand wash and a machine wash. Before you start washing, you need to choose the right medication. Salicylic acid is contained in products such as:
- Aspirin C
- UPSA aspirin
- Aspirin Cardio
- Acetylsalicylic acid
All of them are united by the same active ingredient, but vitamins are also added to the effervescent tablets. They are healthy, but not suitable for the household. When washed with a quick-soluble tablet like UPSA aspirin, the clothes can water due to the dissolution of the additional substances contained in the product. Because of that, it is recommended to use the cheapest analogues, for example, acetylsalicylic acid.
