Add Laundry Detergent Before Clothes

When doing laundry, I fill washer with water, adding 1 cup baking soda and your choice of laundry detergent while it is filling. I run the washer for 30 seconds to distribute the detergent and soda. I then add my clothes and wash as normal. This way, all the clothes get the detergent evenly, not just the top ones. Yes, I have a place to put it in before the washer, but I think this cleans the clothing more evenly. I add bleach the same way. I do see a difference.


I also use plain laundry detergent to get out stains! I use a small squirt bottle that Tide gave away years ago, but any small squirt bottle (dish liquid bottle?)will do. I squirt the offending stain with the detergent and add to load as usual. My husband's work T-shirts have sweat stains on the collar that do not come out with bleach and they are always gone with this method.

Also, Tide is an excellent laxative. About a tablespoon in a big glass of warm water will do. Works every time!
