Quite fitting you posted in purple...lol. We use a purple shampoo for people with gray hair. We get it from a hair supply shop like Sally's. Its the generic brand or something like that. Wash them, scrub it in, let it sit for about 5 min, rinse it out. There are plenty of other purple/blue shampoos that do the same thing. Best bet on white cattle is to not let them get too dirty to begin with. Clean shavings matched with  frequent rinsing/bathing and thus conditioning is a must. We are in Southern Alabama, so washing year round isnt a problem. I imagine dirty spots are inevitable if you are in the north.

We use a laundry bleach called Blu-O, plus any of the purple shampoos.

But nothing beats elbow grease, and plenty of it.

We had great success with Joy and Mrs. Stewarts Blueing, a laundry additive. Simply add directly to the Joy bottle, turn it a dark blue, mix well and then wash the white part each day. Ours were Herefords, so we didn't body scub each time, just washed the white to combat staining.

Good luck. Oh ya... and scrubbed with a rice root brush. That was another portion.

I've shown Charolais cattle and Shorthorns. I think GreenSpot stain remover (Can get it at a big R or tractor supply co.) or Cowboy Magic (same) work the best. You could use it before you wash, or if your calf lays in poop at a fair after a wash. You don't even have to rinse it out. Just spray and brush it in with a curry. Its easy and simple and doesn't smell gross either.

When I showed dairy I used the sullivans bright lights shampoo, it's purple, washed them out and scrubbed those parts with the shampoo concentrated straight from the bottle.  Let them sit a bit, scrubbed some more, and then rinsed.  You might have to do it a few times but they always whitened up for me... well and my hands would too  :-\
