- Wash your white shirt separately. Washing it with other coloured clothes can ruin your beloved white once and for all.
- Choose your detergents carefully.
- Always try to wear undershirts with your white shirt, so that it does not come in direct contact with your body.
- Try washing your shirt in warm water.
- Leave your white shirt to dry in bright sunlight. Ultra violet rays are always very helpful in whitening the shirt.
