Most of us do laundry in our lives, one time or another. Seldom we equip ourselves with the basic knowledge that can make our laundry work easier, however. Following are some super easy laundry tips and tricks that can not only make our job easier but also let our clothes last longer.
- Turning our clothes inside out
Have you ever noticed that inside of your clothes looks better than the outside? Turn your clothes inside out before washing and hanging, and your clothes will look newer for a long time.
- Remove ink stains with hand sanitizer
Ink stains are often hard to remove. Apply hand sanitizer on the ink stains and leave the clothes for ten minutes. Then, wash the cloth separately.
- Clean your washing machine naturally
Why use chemicals when you can clean your washing machine naturally with laundry tips and tricks? Run a hot water cycle with four cups of white vinegar and one cup of baking soda.
- Remove grease and oil stains
Rub chalk or baby powder on oil or grease stains. Repeat the process until the stain is removed. Then wash the cloth normally. Use this laundry tip and trick and save your valuable clothes.
- Use your old towel as dryer sheet
Instead of buying expensive dryer sheet, soak your old towel in fabric softener, squeeze it and hang to dry. Now, you can use it as a dryer sheet for 45 loads.
- Wash bath puffs
Instead of buying new bath puffs, wash your old ones and use them. Put your bath puffs in a mesh bag and wash in a washing machine.
- Make your white clothes look new
Add one cup of baking soda to a laundry load of white clothes. It will not damage your clothes but whiten them so that they look like new.
