my laundry discovery- Frugal Savings

A few weeks ago, I picked up some washing soda, noticing that the box says it boosts your laundry and helps remove tough oders and stains. So when it came time to do our laundry, I tried it out. Now, I don't know about you folks, but my husband has some socks that have the most stubborn stains!

    Default my laundry discovery


    A few weeks ago, I picked up some washing soda, noticing that the box
    says it boosts your laundry and helps remove tough oders and stains.
    So when it came time to do our laundry, I tried it out.
    Now, I don't know about you folks, but my husband has some socks that
    have the most stubborn stains! He wears them so much that they had
    gotten some stains I just gave up on. And the smell! LOL
    Anyways, along with our laundry detergent, I put in 1/2 cup of washing
    soda per load, and 1/2 cup of vinegar w/ 1/4 cup lavender water
    All the stains are gone!

    And the clothes doesn't smell like vinegar!
    All the "period" stains are gone too from that time of the month leaks!!
    Cool, huh???

    Not the person who posted about them, but I have seen washing powder at Wal-Mart
    in the same isle as the laundry soap, the lavender water I am assuming you would
    make yourself.

    I don't know anything about the lavender water, but I do use Arm and Hammer
    washing soda. My mom taught me this trick. Put about a half cup in w/ reg.
    detergent and it really gets the clothes clean and fresh smelling. My white
    load really comes clean-- t-shirts have no deodorant stains and discoloration
    under the arms.
    Some stores even have their own brand which is a little cheaper.

    If I want my whites to go from dingy to white, I soak them in cascade and borax overnight and then wash them the way I usually do the next morning.

    Does this work with colored clothes also, or just whites.

    I've been meaning to tell you all about this great stuff that I use for cleaning. It is SUPER SUPER cheap. Some of you may have used it. I get it at a dollar store called the Dollar Tree, everything is "actually " a dollar, not like some. It is a spray cleaner, called AWESOME.... And it really is too. My husband smokes in the house, which means massive nicotine stains on everything, even in the bathroom. I just went the surface I am going to clean, spray it on, and immediately, the nicotine starts dissolving. DH used to be a truck driver, so you can imagine what the inside of the sleeper looked like after a short time of chain smoking in the truck. I started going with him on the road, and decided that I had to clean it up first. It worked great, especially when you consider that DH wasn't the first driver to chain smoke in that truck. Great stuff, and a great bargain at only a dollar per bottle.

    I agree they definitely picked the right name for this stuff. It will clean just about anything
