You’ve finished washing the dishes, cleaning the bathroom, and organizing the bedroom. But there’s one more thing that needs to be done, your laundry. Though it may be overwhelming and the last thing you want to do, it should be finished.

And to help you get things started, I’ve gathered down below some amazing laundry tips and hacks that’ll definitely save you time and effort. So check them out and let me know what you think!

Add Salt to Keep Colors From Running

Due to overtime use, your clothes can get discoloration whenever they’re washed. So to easily keep colors lasting for a long time, add a pinch of salt to your load and rinse clean. The chloride found in salt helps protect vibrant colors and keeps them from fading too fast in the wash.

Remove Underarm Stains Using Lemon Juice

Get rid of those pesky armpit stains on your shirts or blouses simply by scrubbing them with a mixture of equal parts lemon juice and water. The acid content of lemon works well in stain removing and acts as a natural deodorant as well.

Use Multiple Hampers to Organize Laundry

Arrange and sort your laundry from the white ones to the colored up to the denim and towels by using multiple hampers. You can easily get them at the dollar store for a super cheap price and they will totally save you so much time.

Rub Some Chalk Over Grease Stains

Weather you get it while fixing your car or from smudged food, grease stains are no good on your clothes. They can make you look messy and ruin everything. Thankfully though, you can quickly fix them by simply rubbing the chalk into the stains. The chalk powder will absorb the grease, making the stain easily removable by the laundry soap in the wash.

Remove Ink Stains With Hairspray

Here’s a trick that’ll remove ink stains in no time. All you need to do is apply a hand sanitizer or hairspray on the stained area, let it sit for at least ten minutes, and then throw it into the wash as usual. The alcohol content of both hairspray and sanitizer will act as a powerful solvent leaving no mark at all.

Use Baking Soda And Vinegar To Clean the Washer

And lastly, since you use the washer to clean your clothes, it only make sense to keep it clean as well. And to easily disinfect and clean your machine, just fill the washer using the highest load size, hottest water setting, and longest wash. Add a quart of white vinegar and a cup of baking soda. Let it sit for about an hour and rinse wash after.
