Been on our place 3 years now, first time we've been off city water. Love the well water for the taste, but it is doing a number on my white clothes.
They get stained brown/yellow, but not uniformly as I would expect from iron. Seems to be concentrated mostly (maybe only) where I really sweat. The boy's clothes started doing the same as they hit their late teens and started working hard. Some kind of chemical reaction with minerals and sweat?
Anyway, wife's tried bleach (doesn't work, and eats the clothes up pretty good, too) and different stain removers. Also tried some kind of 'rust out' stuff, which did take the 'dingy' look from the whites, but not the real stains.
Any suggestions?? Thanks!
