I heard about a technique people would use in the past to make white clothes not just dry but a brighter shade of white. White clothes over time tend to lose their bright white shade and turn into a grayish white color that looks dirty even after washing. I learned this from my Grandma and she grew up on an island where they would dry their clothes outside on grass to make them bright and cleaner looking. I wanted to test this method out to see if it's true. If this experiment works, it would be a useful method to brighten white clothes and clothes again.
