Add One Common Ingredient To Laundry For Whiter, Brighter Clothes

Sunday 8th January 2017

I have a confession. There's a shelf in my laundry room that I'm ashamed of. It's above the washer and holds all of the various laundry products that I have bought in hopes of having the cleanest, brightest, freshest smelling laundry. Recently, this shelf became so overloaded that it fell. I was watching television in the living room and heard a horrible crash. I thought a meteor had hit the house. But no, it was just my laundry shelf falling down. Detergents, sprays, powders, and more went tumbling to the floor. Instead of doing the right thing and sorting through those cleaners, I simply put the shelf back up and neatly placed all of the bottles and boxes back where they were.

It's only a matter of time before another disaster occurs. But, I've found a single item that will replace all of those cleaners, and help me gain control over my laundry room.

That one item is simple and inexpensive - it's WHITE VINEGAR. Here's how using white vinegar in your laundry will help give you cleaner, brighter, fresher clothes and linens.

For extra dirty clothes, add a cup of white vinegar to hot water and let the clothes soak overnight.
Delicates and swimwear should be washed by hand, and over time, regular detergents can cause damage. Add six tablespoons of vinegar to the hand wash.
Vinegar added to the wash will help eliminate cigarette odors.
Remove sweat stains and deodorant stains with vinegar.
Replace your fabric softener with vinegar. It works just as well and also reduces static.
1/2 cup of vinegar added to your wash will boost the power of your existing detergent.
That same 1/2 cup of vinegar will eliminate residue when using powdered detergents.
Vinegar helps reduce residual fuzz and animal hair.
Vinegar helps clean the washing machine.
