Need To Know Laundry Hacks

Have you ever not known what to do for a stain or how to get out all those wrinkles? We have all been there before, with the unexpected oil splatter or the smelly gym clothes you left in the hamper too long. Here are some handy cleaning tips that will help with keeping your clothes stain and wrinkle-free.

1. Keep Chalk Handy

Nasty grease stains, oh no! Rub chalk on the oil stain as it is happening, it’s ultra-absorbent and will hold you over until you can wash the garment.

2. Speed Up the Drying Process

Dryer cycle taking too long? You can make the drying process quicker by adding a clean, dry towel to the load.

3. Use Ice Cubes to Iron Your Wrinkles

Wrinkles no more. Toss the wrinkled clothes in the dryer with a couple of ice cubes, put it to the warmest setting, and let the ice cube create steam in the dryer to leave your clothes looking smooth.

4. Shaving Cream = Stain Remover

Who would have thought shaving cream would be used for more than shaving? The foamy nature of shaving cream helps lift stains. It contains similar ingredients in many soaps, so it is a quick fix. Work it in, let it sit, then blot it up.

5. Vodka the Deodorizer

Keep a spray bottle full of vodka and use it to freshen up your smelly clothes for one more re-wear before washing them again.

6. Use Dryer Balls Instead of Dryer Sheets

Dryer balls speed up your drying time and smooth out wrinkles. Dryer sheets can prevent the fabrics from functioning the way they were designed.

7. Pre-Soak Gym Clothes in Vinegar

Have stinky gym clothes? Soak them in a half a cup of white vinegar mixed with cold water for at least an hour before washing. This helps remove odors and helps with sweat stain buildup.

8. Baby Shampoo for Sweat Stains

Annoying sweat stain can be the worst. Treat sweat stains on the collars and underarm areas with a little baby shampoo and let it soak for 30 minutes before throwing them in the wash.
