    i love white too! I also have white duvets in the master and guest room and a white slip cover sofa and a white master bathroom! I also have no trouble keeping it clean. In fact I like it. I can see when it is dirty and I wash it. No yucky camouflaged stains and dirt

    Thanks for the great tip, Im always looking for an easier way to make the bathroom shine. i often use the bleach style toilet cleaner as the nozzle makes it easy to squeeze straight onto the grout lines!!
    P.S i love you bathroom, its stunning!!

    Can you give me your method for washing those slipcovers? I am afraid that the bleach will yellow the fabric. How much do you use and do you fill the washer first?

      I wash my slipcovers on the delicate cycle in my front loading washer with the max amount of bleach allowed. I've done this several times & so far so good on mine! Hope that helps you

    Hi Julie- I am back from my blogging break. I love Clorox and use it for everything I want to keep white-including grout! xo Diana

    Do you have any tips on how to bleach the white parts of a duvet cover/comforter without bleaching the whole thing? I have a white duvet cover but it has grey flowers on it as well, and I'd like to find a way to get it the cleanest without messing up the grey.

      It's probably best not to use regular bleach on a comforter like that. I would suggest Clorox 2 which is safe for colors. Here's what Clorox has to say about their Clorox 2:

      Clorox 2® product uses the power of oxygen action to safely* remove stains from clothes. This formula works best on a broad range of colored stains such as beverages (e.g., coffee, tea, wine), fruits/vegetables (e.g., blueberry, grape, cherry) and spaghetti sauce. It also contains an optical brightener to boost the color of your clothes and whiten whites. This product is specially formulated to be safe for all colors and can be used in almost all loads*. In addition, Clorox 2® product† cleans and brightens colors better than the leading detergent alone. Available in both liquid and powder versions.
      * Use as directed
      † For liquid Clorox 2® Stain Fighter & Color Booster, pre-treat for best results.

      Hope that helps you!

    Hi Julie, I know this blog post is from 2012 so not sure if you check comments. I was wondering how you keep your white duvet so smooth and not wrinkly? I think I have the exact same cal king duvet and shams from pottery barn (The Grand Embroidered) white and gray set, but my duvet is super wrinkly and the edges of my euro shams are floppy- not straight like yours. Any tips?
