A tip to keeping your whites, looking white would be to separate the whites from the colors and use a pre-treater. I received the following to try for myself to keep my laundry looking good. If you choose to use the Gain Flings or the Downy Unstopables- PUT THEM IN the washer BEFORE you add your clothes. It will keep them from having "grease" stain spots on your clothes. Just a tip from experience is all! Don't overload your washer. Think, how can your clothes get properly cleaned if they are over=packed in that washer? Washing clothes in warm or hot water also wears them down faster. Washing them in cold water keeps your brights looking bright- And not to mention try to air dry some of your clothes. You will prevent a headache of having shrinkage. If you choose to dry them in a dryer, set it to the lowest setting. They may take longer to dry but you can prevent that Large shirt from looking like a XXS.

  18. I make a paste of vinegar and dawn to apply to stains as soon as possible. 2 parts vinegar to one part of blue dawn. I had found it on pinterest when looking for something to remove an unknown stain from a BRAND new dress. It worked like a charm! I also wash our clothes in cold water, as many other share. It seems to help with keeping color and energy efficiency.

  19. I used to despise having to help sort laundry at home when I was younger-- it was a chore of mine. Now that I'm a mommy, on a budget, I've found the importance in it. It helps to preserve your color's, white's, dark's, denims, etc.

  48. It might sound gross, but one way to help keep your laundry looking new is to not wash it as much.. If your shirts/pants aren't soiled or stinky, put off washing them. If you only had your favorite blouse on for a few hours for church, of course if you didn't get it dirty from the delicious brunch afterwards, hang it back up! Avoid washing the things that were recently washed, but ended up in the clothes hamper because your 2 year old decided to become a human hurricane and ransack everything.
