    Lol well I just went and put them in some oxiclean. How long do you let them soak? Assuming that's how you do it. :p

    Do you put bleach in too? Or just regular detergent? Because mine were really dirty and still didn't look great after the washing machine. Lol

    My best advice is to be proactive, rinse them as soon as you finish using them if possible

    ^^^I second that.

    In my headband days, I'd throw them in the wash as soon as I got home from playing.

    I've got two of the original 100% cotton bandanas and they're still pretty white. I just wash them after I wear them. I've never bleached them.
