When it comes to annoying household chores, few people disagree that laundry is at the top of the list. No matter how frequently you wash your clothes, a new load quickly piles up and you’re back at it again – all too soon…
Because different kinds of clothes need different kinds of cleaning supplies, water temperatures, and drying processes, doing laundry can make you anxious. But after I learned that white vinegar can actually make washing clothes, all clothes, much easier, I got on board. See just how it does it below!
With just a half cup of vinegar, you can boost the cleaning power of your detergent. It’ll make them cleaner and even brighten the colors.
Additionally, white vinegar acts as a fabric softener. Just pour a small amount in the fabric softener compartment and feel the difference.
And vinegar also helps remove nasty sweat stains. Just spray it on before a wash.
Got any residue from powdered detergents? Don’t worry. Half a cup of vinegar will make that go away.
While out in public, you might pick up tons of scents – food, cigarettes, perfumes. We can’t make this stop but we can get it out of our clothes. Add a bit of vinegar to your load and neutralize the bad smells.
Got bad stains that won’t leave? Add ½ cup of vinegar to a bucket of warm water and soak your clothes overnight. Then run them in the wash and the stains will go away.
Got fuzzies like hair and lint stuck to your clothes? Wash them with vinegar and they won’t attract as much after drying.
You can also reduce the static charge in clothes by washing them with white vinegar. Like magic!
Got delicates? Hand wash with vinegar! Just add 6 tbsp of white vinegar to warm water and hand wash them. Let them sit for 30 minutes before you dry.
Although your washing machine cleans your clothes, sometimes the machine needs to be cleaned. Vinegar does it for you. Add ½ cup to your load and you’ll not only get the benefits for your clothes, the machine will get clean too!
