In a house with two adults, three kids and three cats, we are not strangers to massive piles of laundry. At any given time, we probably have at least 4 baskets full of it. I wash, I dry, I fold, I hang and repeat … indefinitely. Fortunately, it’s not a chore I hate. The said can’t be same for doing the dishes or scrubbing toilets. However, there are a few tools at my disposal that make the task a little bit easier. I recently switched out my laundry routine with two products from ARM & HAMMER. I’ve quickly learned that with baking soda and ARM & HAMMER Ultra Power 4X Liquid Laundry Detergent, I can tackle just about any problem laundry piles throw my way.
Problem #1 – Funky Towels
When laundry piles up the way it does in our house, damp towels can be hanging out in a basket for a day or two. This gives them time to take on a funky, musty smell. The solution? Add 1/2 cup ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda to the rinse cycle. This helps deodorize and get the towels back to smelling fresh and clean.
Problem #2 – Set in Stains
Three kids = lots of stained clothes. My kids tend to end up with more food on their shirts than their mouths. So I deal with a variety of stains from ketchup to chocolate milk. The solution? We pre-treat stains by applying ARM & HAMMER Ultra Power 4X Liquid Laundry Detergent directly to the stain with a soft toothbrush. I let the stained clothing sit for a few minutes before running it through the wash.
Problem #3 – Clothes are Dingy
I can’t say for sure why, but our whites don’t always come out the brightest and the clothes are often off-color a bit. The solution? We add one cup of ARM & HAMMER™ Baking Soda to the dingy colored laundry to make liquid detergent work harder.
