More laundry tricks with baking soda

Want a natural way to brighten whites, even vintage linens? Use baking soda in your next load of laundry. The natural chemistry gently removes dirt and debris, even set-in odors, all while being safe for even the most delicate skin. It works great as a natural fabric softener and is fragrance free. For any of these easy fixes, add ½ cup of baking soda to your wash water and let it do the hard work. Baking soda even comes to the rescue for some of the harshest stains – like a melted crayon that made it through the wash and dry cycle – put those crayon colored clothes in the machine with the hottest water allowable and add ½ -1 box of baking soda to remove waxy colors.
