Kids into team sports this year? All those "sweaty" uniforms and socks making you wish you had a clothespin for your nose? How will you ever get them fresh again using the bargain brand detergent?
Just add a half cup of white vinegar to your wash and all the odors will be gone and it will give your washer a thorough cleaning of any built up mineral deposits at the same time.
Thanks you for the info. Yes I know about stinky clothes with my high school kids playing soccer.
Do you use w/bleach for your whites too?
Instead of vinegar, you can sub baking soda in the wash. Just dump some in while the water if filling up.
I like Gain laundry detergent better than anything. Cheap at Dollar General. Besides vinegar, a cup of lemon juice works too.
I use the homemade detergent and then air dry the sports clothes in the dryer. The heat can damage the materials. I presoak socks in a bucket with detergent mixed in. Her socks could knock you off your feet.
