HOW TO CLEAN WASHING MACHINE
It’s strange how washing machines usually clean our laundry but they can get really dirty as well. Mold usually grows on the rubber gasket in the machine and this is the best way to get rid of the mold.
Get a bottle of vinegar, a clean cloth or brush, and a box of baking soda. Now get a container(dish, bowl, etc) to mix the vinegar and baking soda in. Pour 2 cups of vinegar in the container then sprinkle 2 cups of baking soda in it then mix the two. After mixing you should get the brush or cloth and dip them into the mixture and use them to wipe away the mold from the rubber gasket.
HOW TO REMOVE FOOD STAINS FROM WHITE SHIRTS
Having stains on shirts can make the best-looking outfits look terrible. So that’s why I put this tip on here because removing stains from white clothes can be very difficult to do. This is because we don’t want to ruin it. The best way to remove food stains from white clothes is to mix 2 cups of vinegar and 1 cup of baking soda together. Doing this will create a sticky substance. Now get a spare toothbrush and dip it into the mixture and use it to gently scrub the stained areas on the shirt. Do this for as long as you want but be careful not to overdo it because this might mess up the material on the white shirt(let the mixture sit on the shirt for a couple of minutes).
Now after doing that you should place the shirt into the washing machine and use 2 cups of borax, diluted bleach, and your favorite laundry detergent to wash it. After washing and drying it your white shirt will be looking stainless and cleaner than ever.
HOW TO UNSHRINK SHIRTS
Sometimes shirts usually get smaller over time not because you are getting bigger but because it’s shrinking. Shrinking? You might ask; yes shirts and blouses tend to shrink a lot because we always wash and dry them ( which you should). When washing your shirts or blouses try not to use warm water. If you keep washing them in warm water your clothes will eventually get a bit smaller.
If you already had a shrunken blouse or shirt and want them to fit properly again you need to try this trick. First, get a bucket of cold water and squeeze about 3 cups of conditioner in the water then place the shirt or the blouse in it and spin them around inside the bucket. Do this for 3 minutes. After that, you should let the clothes stay in the bucket for a couple of hours usually overnight. Then after a couple of hours take out the shirt, hold the top part of the shirt( the neck/collar area) and hold the bottom part of the shirt, then stretch. Keep stretching until the shirt starts to become a bit longer(be sure not to rip the shirt). After stretching the shirt rinse it in the sink then let it air dry(use a hanger and hang it somewhere in your house).
NO DRYER SHEETS? WELL TRY THIS DIY REPLACEMENT
If you don’t have a box of dryer sheets but you want them so you can make your laundry smell better. Well, there is a quick and simple way to create your own DIY version of dryer sheets.
The first thing you need is a container. Then fill up 1/2 of that container with water then pour 3-4 cups of fabric softener in it. Then place a couple of clean washcloths in the container. Then let them sit there for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes take out the washcloths and wring them dry, and place them in the dryer with your laundry. This will make your clothes smell so much better.
DON’T MIX WASH
When washing your clothes do not mix them together and throw them in the machine because doing this is will cause you some trouble because some clothes color may run on some of your otger clothing and your white clothes wont be cleaned properly.
The best way to wash on laundry day is to group your clothes together. This means you should ut wash colored clothing separately from whites, wash clothes that can stain other clothing by themself, and don’t wash wool clothing with other clothes. And always wash your white clothing last. This is because when most people wash white clothing they tend to use bleach on them and you don’t want to mess up your colored clothing with bleach.
