8 Great Laundry Hacks
There’s really something for everyone to hate about laundry. Impatient people hate the waiting. Easily-distracted people hate the folding. And there’s not a soul on Earth that enjoys the part where you leave piles of folded clothes in your living room for five to seven business days before reluctantly carrying them upstairs. We can try to make it easier by rounding up a short list of the best hacks, tricks, and techniques for making laundry day go a little bit easier.
1. What to do with that lipstick stain
Take a piece of white bread and roll it over the stain. Soon the lipstick mark will be blotted out. In case some slight color remains, it will go away at the time of washing.
2. Zero ink stains
To wash off the hardest of ink stains, spray either your hand sanitizer or hairspray. They would do wonders in eliminating the stains.
3. Go grass stains
Take liquid soap and mix it with two portions of hydrogen peroxide. Spray it liberally on grass stain. Let the solution sit on it and then rub softly. Wash it with normal water and observe grass stains fading out.
4. Ugly greasy stains
There can be nothing irritating than grease stains on your favorite dress. Rub some chalk (the normal one is just fine) on the grease, and it will be absorbed by chalk powder. The same can be done using baby powder also. Keep on repeating until you have no stain.
5. Sweat stains
There are a number of things that will help you in getting rid of sweat stains. Some of the things are salt, club soda or even milk.
6. Make whites whiter
Make your whites even whiter by adding half a cup of baking soda in the machine load. Baking soda is always better than clothing bleach, as the former won’t wear out your clothes.
7. Hair straightening rod for collars
Iron the collars of shirts with the hair straightening rod. This can be done even while wearing the shirt.
8. Resize the shrunken garment
It is time to learn this useful hack that will help you revive many of your shrunken garments. Just soak those garments in lukewarm water, to which your hair conditioner has been added. Soak for some time and then rinse.
