How to wash things without detergent

Sometimes in life force majeure happens, so there are situations when you need to wash things urgently, and the powder ran out. It is necessary to act promptly, because outdated stains will be very difficult to wash.

To help will come simple and effective ingredients that are in every home. How to wash things, if there is no powder - read in the article OBOZREVATEL.

Method 1: Handmade Laundry Gel

Special laundry gel can be made by your own hands. However, there is a nuance - this way you should wash things only by hand. It is better not to pour such a liquid into the washing machine.

The necessary ingredients:

  • baking soda
  • hard soap (preferably laundry soap)
  • water

For convenience, we offer a step by step instruction.

Step 1. Grate 100 grams of soap on a grater.

Step 2: Pour 2 liters of water into a jug and dissolve the grated soap in it.

Step 3: Place the container on a stove, heat it at a low temperature, stirring thoroughly.

Step 4: Baking soda has unique cleaning properties, which will effectively remove the most difficult stains. When the soap has completely dissolved, add to the solution another 100 grams of baking soda.

Such a solution can be prepared in advance, poured into a sprayer or bottle and used as needed.

Method 2: Detergent

Stains can be treated with dishwashing detergent. If there is no detergent available, the detergent can be poured over the stain for 30 minutes and then added to the washing machine container. It can also be used to wash things by hand.

Method 3. Shampoo or gel

Shampoo or shower gel can replace laundry detergent in emergency situations where the stain needs to be soaked immediately. But these products should not be poured into the machine, because they form too much foam.

Method 4: Mustard powder

You can add a little mustard powder to the drum of the washing machine - no more than 50 grams. The temperature should be chosen according to the recommendations on the label of the clothes. But it is better not to wash cotton clothes with mustard powder.
