Let’s face it: Laundry is one of those chores most of us loathe. However, with the sneaky shortcuts and clever hacks in the video below, laundry day is about to get so much more bearable.
From keeping your jeans looking new to eliminating nasty odors and keeping your washing machine clean, BuzzFeed has compiled some amazing laundry hacks to keep you so fresh and so clean.
It’s amazing how much you can clean, unclog, and deodorize with the simplest of household ingredients. If you need to deodorize your gym bag or musty sneakers, grab a tea bag. To unclog a toilet without using a plunger, you can squirt a decent amount of detergent into the bowl. And every so often, our washing machines can get a little smelly, too. While it can be quite bothersome, there is a quick and easy solution to eliminating that pesky odor. Just run 1/2 cup of mouthwash through an empty washing machine on a normal rinse cycle, and voila! The mouthwash helps to clean and disinfect the machine.
And if you’ve ever had jeans fade after a few washes, you know how frustrating it can be. But there’s an awesome solution to keep your jeans looks fresh and new: Add salt! The salt actually helps set the colors into the fabric and slows down the fading process. (See the full demonstration and instructions in the video.) These laundry hacks and tips are sure to make life just a bit easier.
