*Baking Soda: cleans and deodorizes. Softens water to increase sudsing and cleaning power of soap. Also good for scouring and deodorizing your refrigerator and sinks. To deodorize your trash, put 1/2 cup in the bottom of the can. Is also a good fabric softener for your laundry. When turned into a paste with water, you can rub it to polish silver.
Borax will stretch out your detergent too. My sons need to have perfume & dye free, and so I use borax for softening and boosting the power of the detergent. All through potty training, it got out the smells and stains; of course I also do a load at least every other day. Great soak for poop, formula, coffee, urine, ANYTHING! I buy the cheapest hypoallergenic detergent possible, then use 1/2 the recommended amount with 1/2 cup borax. I use warm water unless delicate fabric, and hang dry delicates. Detergent makes so much suds, you really don't need much, and will build up over time, wearing out the clothes.
The easiest and strongest detergent or soap
And the best drain opener ?
