The Best Bet
More than midway through the summer, those once-white shirts and snowy dresses are looking a little fatigued. Although it’s tempting to hit them with bleach, beware: It can easily dissolve delicate voiles and pimas. Instead, restore their eye-dazzling crispness with blueing, a century-old approach. A few drops of Bluette’s indigo liquid in the wash water and your whites will stay bright through the Labor Day homestretch ($3.59 at Fine Fare, 545 Grand St., nr. Jackson St.; 212-505-8345).
