Bicarbonate of Soda For Cleaning Clothes

Leave a reply »

The other day I wrote about how bicarb of soda saved my hair today I’m going to write about how it has just saved our clothes.

For some reason a lot of our clothes became musty smelling. I don’t know how but no matter how much washing they got we couldn’t get rid of the smell. Honestly, we were on the brink of throwing them out, they just smelt so bad!

So we decided to put a good amount of it into the washing machine along with the normal detergent and I’m pleased to say that our clothes are very much wearable again 🙂

    Yep baking soda will help eliminate funk.

    I make a herbal toothpaste with baking soda. It’s an excellent tooth whitener.

    I also use it when I’m deep cleaning my ferrets tray liners.:-)

    Opal Tribble: can baking soda eat?

    Kin, yes you can eat bicarbonate of soda. Some people put it in when cooking cabbage. It can also be taken with food as an antacid.
