Have trouble getting your white socks white and don't want to bleach them? Update that box of baking soda in the refrigerator and use the old one to soak your socks in.

Add one half cup and your detergent to a small level water load with your socks and let them soak for an hour then wash as usual. You have taken care of two jobs at once.

If you have folks in the house that walk around in their white socks and you can never get them clean, dissolve a dishwasher cube or two depending how many socks you have in a bucket of water and let them sit overnight. The next day, wash as a small load. You won't any lose socks and your white socks will be bright white from the clorox in the dishwasher soap.
