Common Kitchen Item Will Make Your Laundry And Machine Smell Amazing

Vinegar. Not only is it good for your salad, but it will do wonders for your laundry. According to Hefty.co, if you pour half a cup of vinegar into your washing machine before you throw in a load it will strengthen the effects of your laundry detergent, prevent color fade and reduce that gross soap residue that is sometimes left behind on clothing.

If you pour a little white vinegar in the designated compartment instead of fabric softener, the vinegar will soften your clothes even better than fabric softener. It’s also better for the environment. The acid in vinegar is also good for getting rid of sweat and deodorant stains on white clothing, and helps neutralize odors like cigarette smoke.

If you have a tough stain on your hands, then mix half a cup of vinegar with hot water in a bucket and leave the clothing to soak overnight, then wash as normal. Or you can spray the stains with straight vinegar and rub them out.

Clothing with very tough stains should be placed in a bucket of hot water mixed with half a cup of vinegar. Leave the clothing in the bucket overnight and then wash them as you normally would. You can also spray the stains with undiluted vinegar essence and try to rub them away.

Using vinegar in your wash can also get rid of pet hair or fuzz, can reduce static cling and wash delicates like swimwear.
