Dear The Decorating Diva,

How do I keep my white sheets from getting dingy without using bleach?

Shannan,

First, I recommend washing white linens separate from all other laundry. Second I suggest using a little Oxy-Clean (non bleach whitener) – that should keep the whites white. There are other more expensive non-bleach alternatives, but over the years I’ve found oxy-clean to work just as well for much less.

Best,
