Any recommendations on what to use to dip white and it look good? Is it possible?

Man... you can use ANY color with white! It just depends on what end result you're looking for. Purple, red, black, brown... whatever color you use as a wash/dip the model will take that color.
Now, if you're looking for an end result of white... then you're options fall into three categories: warm, cool, and neutral. If you want a "warm" looking model, such as armor or dirty cloth, use a brown like devlan mud. If you're looking for a cool model, such as a pristine white robe, than use a blue color. Lastly if you're looking for something a bit more neutral, such as armor plates, try using a black or grey, such as badab black.
Last month's White Dwarf had an excellent write up on painting white (it's the issue with the skaven).

You dip and then you repaint over the white parts. Its not really as much of a time saving technique as it is an alternate way of doing shading. You are still repainting the white and highlighting as normal.
