You can use baking soda in your laundry in a few different ways: to remove stains, to freshen your clothes, and to enhance your detergent.
Making a paste of 3 parts baking soda to 1 part water will remove almost any stain. Just make sure to let the paste sit for an hour or two before washing.
Soaking smelly clothes or fabrics in water mixed with baking soda will also remove unpleasant odors.
Moreover, adding 1/2 cup of baking soda to your regular amount of detergent will get your laundry extra clean.
