Running a bed and breakfast is a very rewarding career opportunity, but let me tell you when it comes to the behind the scenes work it can be really frustrating. One of my biggest challenges to date was trying to figure out how to get rid of hard water stains that appeared on the white pillow cases.

Our pillow cases are a unique shade of white, but unfortunately the water we wash them in tends to get the pillow cases stained after a while. The general manager of the bed and breakfast and I spent several hours looking up how to remove stains from clothing. We came across hundreds of Google results, but nothing seemed to really work. That was until we found White Brite.

We came across a forum discussion where a mother talked about using White Brite to remove hard water stains from clothing. She said this clothing stain remover really got the hard water stains out and she could barely notice where the stains were after just one use of the product.

Thinking that I had nothing to lose and hoping that I didn't have to order thousands of new pillow cases, I thought I'd try the product. The product was extremely easy to use. All I had to do was soak the pillow cases for several hours and then wash them as I normally would.

The results were amazing. I couldn't find one hard water stain on any of the pillow cases. I was so thrilled with the results that I decided to wash all the bed and breakfast's dingy whites in them. White Brite will now be used as a regular part of the bed and breakfast's cleaning procedure to help keep everything white and bright.
