Tip: Using Borax Instead of Bleach

I buy a 40 oz. bottle of Pine Glo from Dollar Tree to use as a disinfectant/cleaner. Just pour about 1/4 - 1/2 cup in with original wash cycle along with detergent. Cheap and effective. This stuff lasts a long time and very cheap. Hope this helps. Connie

For years people have used Mrs. Stewart's bluing to make whites look whiter. I have just recently started using it & it does seem to help. BJ
