Indigo- Used to Make Whites Brighter?
As some may already know, I am 100% Haitian although I was born in America. :-D
I was speaking to my aunt last night and I mentioned how I use Henna and Indigo to color my hair Jet Black.
She stopped me and was like "Indigo??? Ask your Mother what we used Indigo for back in Haiti". Then I remembered that my mother mentioned she used it when doing laundry.
My Aunt was telling me that they used Indigo Powder to make white clothes whiter. They would just place the blue powder in water then soak the white clothing and they would come out whiter then before.
I think that's very interesting. For some reason, I didn't think they would know what I was talking about when I mentioned Indigo...but in reality they used it for most of their childhood.
