"Wash hair w baking soda and vinegar. My hair has grown a ridiculous amount and is now the longest it's ever been. It also takes 4 days for it to even get SLIGHTLY greasy, where as before it would start getting greasy in less than 18 hours. I will NEVER go back to regular shampoo." I will have to try this...
Washing your washer. Another pinner said: Seriously easy, no wonder our clothes were not getting clean... after the second soak, the water was GROSS!!! -- pin now, look later
Wash your towels in hot water with a cup of vinegar, and then run again in hot water with a half-cup of baking soda. That will strip your towels from all of that residue and mildew smell and will actually leave them feeling fluffy and smelling fresh. ***Do not add laundry detergent to either wash. Just once with vinegar and once with baking soda. *** This trick also works well with wet bathing suits that were left to dry.

My grandma taught me this many years ago. Refreshing towels I use this trick all the time since I noticed my towels smelling funky. It works! - Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelly. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and 1cup vinegar, then a 2nd time with hot water and half cup baking soda. This strips the residue and leaves them fresh and able to absorb more water again. Works like a charm!
