Baking Soda

Baking soda does a great job of brightening your whites and colors and will make your clothes look newer. Any odors in your clothes will wash right out when you use baking soda.


Borax does an incredible job of removing stains and smells. If you have urine on your clothing then you will love that Borax will remove the urine odor, leaving your clothes smelling and clean.

Lemon  Juice

Lemon juice and salt will quickly kill the spores and can be washed out in hot water for a great finish. It’s also great for getting juice stains out of your clothing.


Vinegar does a great job of removing any residue from your dark clothing. This means that if you have washed your black clothing in detergent before and have residue that makes it look dull

Soap  Nuts

Soap nuts are non-toxic and natural, you don’t have to worry about them bothering your skin or exacerbating problems. This is great for people who have sensitive skin


Do not use a combination shampoo and conditioner or one that tints hair. Use only one teaspoon for a bathroom sink full of water. Use more for a larger sink or several items.

Bar  Soap

The laundry soaps or regular bath bars can be used for hand washing clothes by shaving a bit into hot water to melt or by rubbing key soiled areas with the bar.

Body  Wash

As with the recommendations for shampoo, use only a small amount and choose a wash without added moisturizers. Do not forget to only use body wash when handwashing your clothes

Dishwashing  Liquid

In a real pinch, reach for the hand dishwashing liquid only if you will handwash your clothes. Use the smallest amount and double-check bleaching agents.

Laundry  Balls

You simply need to add this ball to the water collected in the washing machine. The laundry ball deep cleans without damaging the fabrics.
