Easy home remedies for naturally cleaner, shinier clothes

Laundry can appear to be an endless task. Add to that the use of various commercial products that make your clothes lose softness and colour and are often expensive. We’ll focus on five natural cleaning products that minimize the effort involved and the usage of commercial products in doing laundry.

1. Borax:

Borax, also known as Sodium Borate acts as a fabric softener and removes toxic residues from clothes. It’s a great stain remover and neutralizes the odour present in the laundry. Just add half a cup of Borax to your wash load for fresher, cleaner and long-lasting clothes.

2. Disprin:


Disprin is a miracle home hack for having whiter whites. Just crush a few tablets, mix them with hot water and soak your whites in the mix. The tablets fight perspiration stains, reduce fading and show visible results within a few minutes.

3. Lavender:


This aromatic herb is used as a fabric sanitizer. Just add 1-2 drops of lavender oil and run a regular wash cycle before you hang the clothes for drying. Its anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and anti- bacterial properties disinfect the laundry preventing the risk of allergies and other ailments.

4. Tea tree oil:

An easy solution to remove sweat stains from your favorite shirt is to use salt. Boil a litre of water and add four tablespoons of salt to it. Sponge the garment with this solution. You will find visible results almost instantaneously.

As stressful as this chore is, some of these easily available ingredients can be found in your own kitchen and can add years to some of your favorite outfits. It’s helpful to give your washing machine a good scrub with hot water and detergent once a month as well to remove bacteria, mold and buildup from the surface.
