12. Keep laundry fresh
I use baking soda when doing my laundry all the time. It’s a great, cost-effective way to boost the effects of your all-natural detergent. When adding around 2 tablespoons of baking soda to your liquid detergent, you can achieve whiter whites and brighter colors.
This is so cost-effective because baking soda has the ability to soften the water — meaning, you need less detergent. And since it protects your clothes, they will last longer. Also, if you ever need to really soak your clothes (like your partner’s socks after work), place them in a gallon bucket with baking soda and soak overnight, before washing the following day.
