Basically Every Cleaning Hack You Need For Clothes

Laundry Stain Removal Guide

Perspiration: Whether it’s summer or not, it always feels inevitable that sweat stains are going to pop up on our favorite (light colored) tops. So making a baking soda/water mixture is a great way to get rid of it. Just make sure you throw it into the wash around 10 minutes after applying.

Extra Tip: If you don’t have baking soda, just use lemon juice and water to get rid of the sweat stains.

How to Remove Every Type of Stain

Remove Ink With Hairspray: Now this is one of my own cleaning hacks and it’s helped me out so many times. Now I know that milk can help, but hairspray is a great way to get ink off your clothes without having to wash it afterwards (if you don’t wash the milk out, it’ll goes sour.. which isn’t so great… especially on a date).

How Often You Need to Wash Everything

Jeans Every 3 Wears: It’s so important that you remember to wash your jeans every 3 wears (or better yet, 5+ wears). It may sound a bit gross, but unless it’s super hot and humid out, or you’re rolling in mud, your jeans should not be washed often. They’re one of the clothing items that gets damaged the most (with fabric and color) when in the washing machine.
