    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.
