What is the Best Natural Non-Bleach Whitener?

Popular Good Question

Q: My mother finds it appalling that I don't use bleach to whiten my sheets and clean the bathroom shower. When she asked what I use instead, I told her that I simply try to avoid white textiles whenever possible. And as for my shower... well, it's looking a little less than pristine. It seems silly to have to avoid whites, right? But what other alternatives are there? Borax? Hydrogen peroxide? Is there anything just as good, or does it all still pale in comparison?
