Vinegar For Laundry

Vinegar is something we all have sitting in the pantry. Did you know that it is also a great all purpose cleaner and does wonders for your laundry? Here are a couple of uses of vinegar for laundry.

  1. Use it as a fabric softener. Add 1/4 cup of white vinegar to the rinse cycle of your wash instead of using fabric softener.
  2. Keep your whites whiter. That same vinegar will also keep your whites whiter and even colors brighter.
  3. Use it as a spot remover. Spray full strength vinegar on stains, then wash as usual. I keep vinegar in an old cleaned out spray bottle for this.
  4. Get your white and light colored dish cloths looking like new. Get out a large pot and fill it with water. Add a cup of vinegar and your dish cloths. Bring the water to a boil, then turn off the heat, cover the pot and let it sit overnight.
  5. Adding vinegar to the wash also removes a lot of the static from your laundry. You can skip the dryer sheets.
