Use vinegar as fabric softener

The next time you wash clothes, try using White Vinegar in the fabric softener dispenser. You can either use only the white vinegar or make a mixture of vinegar and fabric softener if you want to keep the delicious scent. Don’t worry, your clothes won’t smell of vinegar if you only use that.

There are several reasons why vinegar is suitable as a rinse aid.

1) It maintains the color in the clothes. This is especially good for black clothes, which often become slightly grayish over time.

2) The vinegar prevents lime from the water to stain the garments. Similarly, the vinegar also loosens soap residue.

3) Furthermore, the vinegar takes better care of your washing machine, which will also benefit from the function of the vinegar as a lime remover.

4) Vinegar does not remove the absorbing power of clothing as ordinary fabric softener does. This can usually be a problem with using fabric softener on towels, dishcloths and training clothes, which should be able to absorb.

5) Vinegar is better for the environment than fabric softener.

Get rid of the sweat

Sometimes you can wash your clothes so many times, and yet both the sweat stains and the smell from the hard bike ride or the hot summer day are just stubborn. Fortunately, you can just use vinegar

Removing bad smell.

To remove the sweat from your clothes, soak it in water and vinegar. Make a mix of half water and half white vinegar. Put the sweaty clothes in the mix for approx. 2 hours. Then wash it in the washing machine – then both sweat odor and vinegar are gone.

Removing Stains

In many cases, the sweat stains will disappear with the odor if you use the above method and occasionally scrub the stains while the clothes are soaking. As another option, you can turn your shirt inside out and pour approx. 2 tbsp. of white vinegar on the sweat stain. After that, it should disappear, and you can put your sweater into an ordinary wash – preferably with vinegar as a rinse aid.
