Safe way to bleach tulle to near perfect
We load the tulle into the washing machine, add 2 aspirin tablets to it.
Pour about 1 tablespoon of baking soda into the prewash compartment of the washing machine. Pour gel or powder into the main wash compartment.
Turn on delicate or manual mode. Carefully study the modes of your washing machine and choose the one that suits you. Set the temperature to 30 degrees and turn off the spin so that the tulle does not wrinkle.
Activate the prewash mode so that the soda enters the drum with it, and start the washing machine.
After washing, remove the tulle from the machine immediately. The longer it sits in the drum, the more wrinkled it will become. Even when wet, the tulle became noticeably whiter. Once completely dry, it can be hung on the curtain.
