Hello! I have stumbled upon this easy, cheap and friendly to the ecology laundry detergent. White vinegar!
Yes, plain old vinegar that is used for window washing and in the kitchen!
Lately, we have been giving much thought in how to save our planet and "go green". Vinegar has always been my cleaner of choice for window washing. My husband has a dirty job and I always use vinegar with laundry detergent to brighten up his clothes without fading them.
A few weeks ago, I had an idea. I tried vinegar as a laundry detergent, just by itself and it worked like a dream! There are no "after smells" either from clothing that is not clean enough or from the vinegar itself. The clothing comes out bright, clean and ready to go!
This idea saves me money and helps save our planet since vinegar comes from apples. It also keeps our apple growers in my neck of the woods in business and that is also a plus.
The only word of caution is that I have tried white vinegar since I had that on hand. I have no idea how other types of vinegar work or if they would hurt your clothing, so be cautious.
