Life hacks for laundry

Even the simplest and cheapest laundry detergent will make your laundry perfectly clean if you add one effective ingredient. This life hack is actively gaining popularity online, and those who have already tried it assure us that the clothes will be not only clean but also soft, so you won't even have to use fabric softener.

The secret is simple: add baking soda to the laundry detergent. OBOZREVATEL explains the features of the life hack and the basic proportions.

There are several ways to use baking soda: you can mix 2 teaspoons with the powder directly in the machine container or even put it in the laundry drum. The crystals will help get rid of dirt and stains, and restore brightness and freshness to things.

In addition, baking soda has softening properties, so you can stop using store-bought fabric softener.

By the way, if you have been looking for a way to restore the brightness of colors that have faded after repeated washing, salt is an ideal option. You can add it to detergents or even use it for washing in a machine. Salt is not only suitable for colored clothes but also preserves the brightness of white clothes. Read the article to find out how to add salt to your washing machine and what warnings there are about this method.

However, pay attention to the recommendations for using washing machines, as some manufacturers do not advise adding salt to the container to avoid damage.
