Whiten Linens with Lemons
Damask napkins, linens, even white socks can be whitened on the stove.
Fill a pot with water and a few slices of fresh lemon and bring to a boil.
Turn off heat, add linens, and let soak for up to an hour; launder as usual.
For extra brightening, spread them out in the sunlight to dry.
