As it has been said, baking soda is every homebody’s best friend. Already famous as a useful cleaning solution, it only makes sense that adding 1/2 cup of baking soda to your laundry would improve your clothes and linens! We all know that baking soda has magical cleaning powers but adding it to your laundry in addition to your regular detergent can make your items whiter, brighter and fresher! Here’s how…

1. Neutralizer


Acid spills can come from many things. Sometimes, placing them in the washing machine without treating them will just render them permanent in your clothing. Before you throw your clothes into the machine, consider sprinkling the stain with baking soda to prevent further damage.

2. Stain Remover


Baking soda is a great way to remove stains and brighten fabrics. For items like aged linens, adding 1/2 cup to the washer can whiten and brighten and even reverse damage from older stains.

3. Fabric Softener Replacement


Fabric softeners can be used to naturally soften your clothes. A little bit of baking soda is a much better option if people you live with have sensitivities to chemicals in the laundry. All natural and just as effective!

4. Remove Odors


Finally, baking soda is a great deodorizer. You’ll find that smells will disappear when you use bleach in your laundry cycle. Try this with bathing suits, gym clothes or musty old towels, and especially your socks! It’s not just the odors but the musty scent of these oft-damp clothing items that will disappear!
