I do not think I will ever have the backbone required to own a white pair of pants. I cannot keep a pair of blue jeans clean past one wear, but at least those have the ability to be cleaned. If I get even a smudge of dirt on anything white then it quickly spreads over a greater surface area very quickly. I know I cannot be trusted to use bleach on anything because the whites would only stay the same while the darks would somehow get streaks of bleach all over them despite not even being washed in the same load.
Every time I do laundry it is like Murphy's Law incarnate. I should just give it all up entirely and pay my local laundromat to do it for me. It would probably save me money in the long run since I would not be ruining clothes on a regular basis. I still would not trust them with a pair of white pants though. I am lazy not crazy. I am convinced that White pants are single use items, meant to be thrown out every day.
