2. Deep stain removal on collars and cuff
If the hot weather is leaving sweat stains on your shirts and other tops, make a homemade stain remover by stirring in spoons of vinegar to bicarbonate of soda until it form a thick paste. Rub it into the stains before chucking it in for a hot wash.
3. Clean cloth nappies & prevent nappy rash
Neutralise the urine in soft cloth nappies and by soaking them in a bucket with a solution of 1/2 pint of vinegar and 9 litres of water. It also helps prevent staining! If you wash nappies in the washing machine, add 1/2 pint of vinegar before the rinse cycle to equalise the pH balance which is said to help prevent nappy rash in babies who wear cloth nappies.
4. Cut down on lint in your laundry
Another great reason to pop vinegar in the rinse cycle of your washing machine is that it helps reduce the amount of lint after laundering. For an average load of laundry, add 1/2 a pint of vinegar into the rinse cycle and you’ll hopefully experience less lint.
