Laundry blueing
[Return to Topics]

Hello,

We are getting our chickens ready for our 1st 4-H fair and found an article to wash our chickens with Laundry Blueing (they have white feathers) followed by Glycerin.

I found the glycerin, but have been unable to locate this laundry blueing. Does anyone know what it is and where it might be purchased?

Thank you,

Therese


Mrs. Stewart's is it    Posted 07-19-2003 at 07:56:37       [Reply]  [No Email]
We can buy it locally in a couple of places..."Weiss Market" is a regional chain of supermarkets, for example, in the laundry aisle. Several old-time hardware/general stores, too.

You can also buy it on-line directly from Mrs. Stewart's, although they package it in bottles of 3 for mail-order. Do a web search and you'll find the site.

I don't remember - do chickens get nervous when you stare at them? I know dogs do - one of my buddies who attends dog shows likes to catch another dog's eye and stare at it. He claims they notice, then they stare back, then start fidgetting and eventually they bark. I tried it with my cat, she put us both to sleep. :)

add laundry bluing to your dry beans when cooking and you can fart a blue streak

ROFLMAO!!!!!!!! Around here, (Northern NY) stores still carry laundry bluing in the detergent aisle--it's usually a little box or bottle, (3-4 oz.) so if you're looking for a big laundry detergent bottle, you'll overlook it.

to take out the red clay color from show dogs around here, bluing does a good job. However, it is used with only a few drops to a gallon. Pet store may have safer product

Be careful of advice from your compition. I think that is the stuff that grandma used to give her grey hair that blue tint. Now think you really don't see many older ladies with blue tinted hair anymore when it used to be quite a fashion. Could this be why we can't find laundry blueing ?

Dang, I just bought some of that a few months ago, but I can't remember the name of it. I know I found it in the laundry section at walmart.

I did a search and there are quite a few.
Mrs. Stewart's Bluing seems familiar.
Also look in grocery store laundry product section.
It is out there.

Did you find the laundry blueing? I am in search of blueing for a science project. I too did not find any. I did go to an ACME that said they used to have it. If you have any luck, please post.

Thanks for the information.

I was at Walmart today and searched the laundry aisle for quite awhile without luck. Also a few hardware stores without luck.

Now that I have a the brand name I can look closer tomorrow.

Thanks again,
Therese
