I have lots of posts that talk about how to use vinegar to boost your laundry but today I’m going to be sharing lots of ways to use Arm & Hammer Baking Soda in the laundry!
To get whiter whites brighter brights add 1/2 cup baking soda for a natural way of boosting your detergent and brightening your clothes!
To save money, and get softer clothes, add 1/2 baking soda to the rinse cycle of your washing machine, which allows the baking soda to act as a natural fabric softener.
If you’ve got a load of stinky clothes add 1/2 cup – 1 cup of baking soda to the washing machine to kill the odors. Not only will it kill the odors but it will brighten your dirty clothes!
To remove tough stains make a paste of baking soda and water and work it into the stain with your fingers or an old toothbrush. Work the paste into the stain, let it dry and then wash as normal. The stain will lift out in the wash.
Freshening the Hamper
Just like Arm & Hammer Baking Soda can be used to freshen up the fridge, it can also be used to freshen up your laundry hamper. Sprinkle a little baking soda in the hamper to kill any lingering odors.
Hand Washing Clothes
If you have an item that has to be hand washed use baking soda to brighten the colors and remove stains, just like you would in the washing machine. Add a little baking soda to the water in the sink and you will love how clean your items look when you’re done!
Cleaning the Washing Machine
