Washing clothes is one job which is beyond profession, race and gender. No single person can escape from laundry unless he/she is bound by certain conditions. If you are a bachelor or a housewife (house husband if any) then laundry has to be your most favorite among the odd jobs that you do. However it’s a sheer necessity and to boost your interest towards it, here we bring you few tips that you can certainly follow and share with your friends to keep your clothes clean.
For a clean and sparkling white clothes
No matter how many times you wash, white clothes never stay white right? Try this tried and trusted washing method. Soak the cloth in a solution of 4 liters water and add 180g bicarbonate of soda. Dissolve 5 aspirin tablets in hot water and soak the clothes in it and while rinsing in washing machine, add 240ml white vinegar.
Let the clothes don’t fade away
Often garments fade and look distressed after few days of shopping. So, for blacks, add two cups of brewed coffee or tea to the rinse cycle and if it is a navy blue, add one cup of table salt to the rinse cycle. For denim jeans you can soak it in a solution of water and white vinegar before the first wash.
Save yourself from bad odor
Found sweat clothes in a bag after a couple of weeks? If a sock in the old shoe is making the worst ambiance around, just pre-soak it in a solution of baking soda and add half cup white vinegar to rinse cycle. Then wash it properly to save yourself from bad odor.
Often you find yellow stain on white linen cloth and removing that can be really troublesome. In that case, boil the stained clothes for an hour in a solution made of ¼ of cup salt, ½ cup baking soda with 1 gallon water in a large cooking pot.
Have you tried Listerine?
Listerine cool mint can be handy while washing. Just add two drops of Listerine in your washing machine and run it through a cycle.
For Clean curtains and rugs
If clean curtains bring glory to the house then odorless rugs can get a sound sleep during winter. Just add half cup of salt to your laundry detergent while washing and if rug is too large for washing machine then use salt water and scrub it well with a clean rag.
Do not overload dryer
Avoid loading too much of clothes into a dryer at once instead run an extra spin cycle. This squeezes excess water, keeping dryer in condition for longer time. Look at the size of clothes and load accordingly.
You can almost skip ironing
Yes, immediately remove the clothes from dryer; hang shirts and pants to prevent wrinkles. Later on, just a gentle ironing will suffice the need.
Let everything be in place
