The minute spring and summer hit, the whites in my closet are put on heavy rotation. White jeans, white T-shirts, and crisp, white button-downs are all major staples in my wardrobe this time of year. So the challenge has been keeping my whites looking as fresh as when I first bought them. When you’re wearing whites a lot, you don’t want them to fade or yellow over time.
