    try adding baking soda to the wash in addition to the bleach..it works for my whites

    also, it could be your water, mineral deposits, or something like that

    Use Cascade dishwashing detergent!! I have to wear white to work (I am an RN) so I get TONS of stuff on my uniforms and wash/wear them constantly. They still look as white as they did when I bought them. One of the "seasoned" nurses told all of us that little trick and it really does work. I just use the liquid bottle and add a little squirt to my load.
