Be sure that the tub is full before adding bluing powder so that you don’t get blue splotches, if you have a front loader dissolve the powder in a cup of water before adding. If you don’t know when the final rinse starts on your machine starts you’ll need to time it. Once you know how long it takes you can use an oven or phone timer so you know when to put the bluing powder in.
The way that the blueing process works is to swap yellow pigments for blue pigments and vice versa. When the powder is initially made, it is blue, over time the blue pigment grabs the yellow pigment out of the baking soda so it looks yellow. When the product is diluted in lots of water, the baking soda dissolves away and the powder goes back to being blue and then attaches to the yellow pigments in the sheets, which is the first stage of the whitening process. The second stage is when the sheets are left to dry in sun light, the second part of the whitening process occurs at this stage, leaving your sheets with that nice crisp blue white finish.
