    If you wash with it regularly? That may help. My parents never used bleach and the bottoms of my socks were always dingy. The man uses bleach with every load of whites and it took a couple months (granted I never do the laundry so who knows how long it really took) but they are bright and pretty, and the new ones keep that way.

    That Oxyclean stuff in the pink bottle is good. Let your whites soak in that for a while and it comes up lovely. Now, where DID I put my bra? :p

    Happens to me too... must try bleaching with every wash. Generally, I just keep aside some good white undies which I don't use/wash often so that they last.

    to be honest, for the price that you can get bras for now, it may be best chucking the old ones and getting some new ones which you can ensure you just wash with whites.

    I have had many a grey bra in my time, and tried different variations of bleach and they didnt do a great job.

    Can you buy me some bras? I just bought a couple at half price and they still cost a fortune :( Bra's are more expensive than most other clothing :crying: Not that that is helpful at all, I'm just really whiny today ;)

    Put them on the line when it's going to be frosty the next morning.
