Pre-soak the pants in a bucket filled with 1 gallon of cool water and 1/4 cup bleach for five minutes.

Add a capful of your usual laundry detergent to the water as it is filling the machine.
Add about 3/4 cup of chlorine bleach to the washing machine while the machine continues to fill up.
Add the soaking white pants to the washing machine and close the lid.
Dry the pants according to the clothing care label, either in the dryer or by laying them out to air dry.
