Advantages: adds sparkle to your whites, great value
One thing that I hate to see is white clothes that have turned that horrible grey or yellow colour. White clothes should be White, crisp and fresh looking, so in order to keep my White laundry looking White I use the Dr Beckman Glowhite laundry sachets in my White washes to give my Whites a extra boost during the wash.
I generally tend to purchase my Dr Beckman Glowhite sachets from Wilkinsons as they only cost £1.00 for a box of 5 sachets. You only need to use one sachet per load of White washing, as I only generally do one load of Whites per week then a box will usually last me a month so are pretty good value in my opinion.
The Glowhite sachets contain special whitening agents that say that they work even on low temperatures to restore the whiteness of your garments while also adding a UV protective layer to your clothing to reduce the penetration of the sun's rays.
The sachets are really easy to use you just simple load your washing into the machine, place one of the Glowhite sachets towards the back of the drum on top of the washing and then add your usual detergent. I generally wash all of my clothing on 30 degrees to save some energy and to protect delicate items and find that the sachets work perfectly well even at these low temperatures. It states on the box that the sachets work even at 20 degrees but I have not been able to test this as my machine does not go lower than 30 degrees.
When you empty your washing out of the machine somewhere you will find the empty sachet that you just simply throw away. The sachet feels like paper but must be a special type that does not dissolve but that allows the powder inside to seep through in the wash.
Overall I have been very happy with these Glowhite sachets I can certainly tell differences when I have used a sachet in my Whites load. My husband has quite a few plain White cotton t-shirts that I used to replace quite often as they tended to look a little dingy but they now look a lot brighter for longer with the addition of the Glowhite to the wash. Also the Glowhite is almost fragrance free, you can smell a very slight soapy fragrance when you open the box but this does not affect the washing, when I take the garments out all I can smell is the detergent I have used. Also if you have a garment that contains colours as well as Whites you can still use one of these sachets as it does not affect the colours in any way, I have tested this and it does work.
I would certainly recommend anyone to try these Glowhite sachets, my mum has used them for years on her net curtains and swears by them and I certainly think that they make a difference to White clothing giving them a little sparkle back!
Summary: helps keep whites looking white for longer
