Best way to clean and brighten up white sheets with a pattern?

I have some sheets I love (they are white with little dinosaurs on them), but they get dingy really fast and look dirty even when I've just washed them (they're pretty cheap but they make me happy). Seriously, even when they were new they looked kind of dingy after sleeping on them for two nights. What's the best way to get them as clean and white as possible without fading the dinosaurs?

Home Laundromat!

I would like to buy a used washer/dryer and thought I'd pick your collective brains. I've been in apartments with coin op laundry for so long the thought of buying a washer/dryer is daunting.

Why don't laundry detergents rinse clean?

If I spill tide laundry detergent on my hand it doesn't just rinse off with water like it should, you have to actually wash it off with hand soap or dish soap to get it off. Why is this?

Detergent-induced feline narcolepsy

When we change the duvet cover on our bed, Pusslikeso immediately dives under the covers and basically becomes comatose. She can't wait, she runs into the bedroom as soon as we start and jumps up while we're changing the bottom sheet (so she often almost gets herself made into the bed). What chemical could she possibly be reacting to? [more inside]

Left detergent in a hot car, still good?

'Should I eat it?'-but-with-soap-filter: I left my Tide Free and Clear Coldwater liquid detergent out in the car for a day or two when it got hot. Now it smells just ever so slightly off- kinda winey/fermented. WTF, and will it still clean my clothes? [more inside]
