There is no white dye that you can add to your wood-pulp slurry to whiten it. Any and all dyes will only make it appear darker. Bleach is used to whiten paper the same way it is used to whiten your clothes when you wash your laundry. There are a number of different bleaches made from hydrates and per-chlorates. None of them are "environmentally friendly" ...

Anything you can suspend in water that will look white will be a particulate of some kind (like paint pigment). Any particulate larger than colloidal size will fall out of suspension over time. Dyes will stay dissolved (as food coloring will) but dyes don't have the property of reflection, so can't look white. The best I can suggest is colloidal chalk, ...

You can use any of the following: Salt: Add a tablespoon of salt to the wash, and the chloride will help our clothing pack a colorful punch when it comes out of the dryer. Chloride found in salt actually helps to seal the color in backpacks, thus keeping it from fading. COLD WATER: Washing backpacks in cold water will not only help you cut down on your ...

I'll answer this based on my research and preference. GREEN is known to be soothing for eyes, I have customized my editor to keep important and more significat elements in my code as green, like variable declarations so that I can easily check for occurrences. Avoid black background, it puts extra strain on eyes. Though some prefer the black theme I ...

I see that you play guitar. You can cut the carpet and use pieces of it to place your pedals/equipment when in studio. If you have a pet, you can cut and place carpet inside it's house to keep it warm. If you are a murderer you can always wrap dead bodies inside the carpet. If you have a studio you can place it on the walls to prevent room reverb when ...

Hydrogen peroxide can work to remove it, you can also try lemon juice 1:1 with baking Soda after the peroxide. Strong hydrogen peroxide is likely to be more effective but not too important, it is highly reactive so make sure you clean thoroughly with a cloth before using it. Depending on the type of plastic you can try strong acetone. However note that ...

I found that the best way was to wash hair and rinse with lemon juice in the water and then go out in the direct sun to let air-dry. Not that much slower than a hairdryer unless of course it is a cold, miserable day. Use all the juice of a lemon an do this two or three times a week. If you're able to get into the sun you should notice a bleaching effect ...

Inorganic soluble cutting oil used in industrial machines such as lathes and mills. It's mixed with water, stays in solution as far as I know, and doesn't mold.

The stuff only has to look milky; not be milky to achieve your goal. When I shoot liquids for advertising that I want to glow (or look like they do) such as a glass of frosty beer or a jar of marmalade jam, etc, I put a reflector card behind the subject and let the light show through the liquid. Using this technique allows me to vary the lighting in a very ...

Commenting on another answer gave me the idea to use an anis spirit (ouzo, sambuca, pastis, raki) mixed with water. The ouzo-effect results in a milky solution which, according to the Wikipedia article, is very stable due to the small particle size in the range of microns and the chemical interplay. I will try this (and suggestions in the other answers) out ...

You could try adding something to milk to sterilize it. Household bleach may work, but may also turn it clear (bleach turns coloured things white, but I'm not cure if it turns white things clear). Campden tablets (sodium metabisulfite) as used by homebrewers for sterililising might be a better choice. You didn't say what you need this for, so I don't know ...
