Dryer balls from old socks. Add essential oil to the center or soak in fabric softener and let dry. These can help move laundry around so it dries faster.
Dryer balls from old socks. Love these! They work well, are easy to make, and let you use up old fabric scraps and orphan socks. They don't look as pretty as the felted yarn kind, but this way you don't have to use up good knitting yarn! I put essential oil in the first layer of scraps and now my laundry smells nice.
No cost dryer ball - fabric scraps + mate-less socks = dryer efficiency!
A Back To Basics Lifestyle: No-Cost Dryer Balls reduce drying time WHILE eliminating the need for fabric softener. Great way to use up old miss-match socks!!
DIY dryer balls BRILLIANT use for all of the mismatched socks whose mates have disappeared during the wash - make 4 balls out of ANY fabric - doesn't need to be wool yarn (that's why tennis balls work)
Miracle Cleaners, Hydrogen Peroxide Magic, Amazing Versatile, Armpits Stains, Hydrogen Peroxide Useful, Bathroom Sinks, Clean Cookies Sheet, Oxi Clean, Kitchens Sinks
HYDROGEN PEROXIDE MAGIC! Ever since I started using Hydrogen Peroxide to get rid of armpit stains, to clean cookie sheets, as a miracle cleaner in my kitchen and bathroom, and to make my own “oxi clean”…I ALWAYS have at least one bottle of the stuff under my kitchen sink, under my bathroom sink, AND in the laundry room. This stuff is amazingly versatile! But it wasn’t until recently, after doing some IN DEPTH research on the subject, that I came to realize what a “miracle substance” hydrogen peroxide really is! It’s safe, it’s readily available, it’s cheap, and best of all, it WORKS! It works for a LOT of stuff! Hydrogen peroxide should really be called oxygen water, since it is basically the same chemical make up as water but with an extra oxygen atom (H2O2). Because of this it breaks down quickly and harmlessly into oxygen and water. Some other interesting facts about hydrogen peroxide: It is found in all living material. Your white blood cells naturally produce hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) to fight bacteria and infections. Fruit and vegetables naturally produce hydrogen peroxide. This is one of the reasons why it is so healthy to eat fresh fruit and vegetables. It is found in massive dosages in the mother’s first milk, called colostrum, and is transferred to the baby to boost their immune system. It is found in rain water because some of the H20 in the atmosphere receives an additional oxygen atom from the ozone (O3) and this H2O2 makes plants grow faster. Next to Apple Cider Vinegar, hydrogen peroxide ranks up there as one of the best household remedies. Besides the obvious (cleansing wounds), did you know that it is probably the best remedy to dissolve ear wax? Brighten dingy floors? Add natural highlights to your hair? Improve your plants root systems? The list goes on and on! There are SO many uses for this stuff that I’ve started replacing the cap on the hydrogen peroxide bottle with a sprayer because it’s easier and faster to use that way. I have compiled a rather impressive list of uses for 3% hydrogen peroxide that I hope will have you as thrilled and bewildered as I was! Wash vegetables and fruits with hydrogen peroxide to remove dirt and pesticides. Add 1/4 cup of H2O2 to a sink of cold water. After washing, rinse thoroughly with cool water. In the dishwasher, add 2 oz. to your regular detergent for a sanitizing boost. Also, beef up your regular dish soap by adding roughly 2 ounces of 3% H2O2 to the bottle. Use hydrogen peroxide as a mouthwash to freshen breath. It kills the bacteria that causes halitosis. Use a 50/50 mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water. Use baking soda and hydrogen peroxide to make a paste for brushing teeth. Helps with early stages of gingivitis as it kills bacteria. Mixed with salt and baking soda, hydrogen peroxide works as a whitening toothpaste. Soak your toothbrush in hydrogen peroxide between uses to keep it clean and prevent the transfer of germs. This is particularly helpful when you or someone in your family has a cold or the flu. Clean your cutting board and countertop. Let everything bubble for a few minutes, then scrub and rinse clean. (I’ve been using it for this a LOT lately!) Wipe out your refrigerator and dishwasher. Because it’s non-toxic, it’s great for cleaning places that store food and dishes. Clean your sponges. Soak them for 10 minutes in a 50/50 mixture of hydrogen peroxide and warm water in a shallow dish. Rinse the sponges thoroughly afterward. Remove baked-on crud from pots and pans. Combine hydrogen peroxide with enough baking soda to make a paste, then rub onto the dirty pan and let it sit for a while. Come back later with a scrubby sponge and some warm water, and the baked-on stains will lift right off. Whiten bathtub grout. First dry the tub thoroughly, then spray it liberally with hydrogen peroxide. Let it sit — it may bubble slightly — for a little while, then come back and scrub the grout with an old toothbrush. You may have to repeat the process a few times. Clean the toilet bowl. Pour half a cup of hydrogen peroxide into the toilet bowl, let stand for 20 minutes, then scrub clean. Remove stains from clothing, curtains, and tablecloths. Hydrogen peroxide can be used as a pre-treater for stains — just soak the stain for a little while in 3% hydrogen peroxide before tossing into the laundry. You can also add a cup of peroxide to a regular load of whites to boost brightness. It’s a green alternative to bleach, and works just as well. Brighten dingy floors. Combine half a cup of hydrogen peroxide with one gallon of hot water, then go to town on your flooring. Because it’s so mild, it’s safe for any floor type, and there’s no need to rinse. Clean kids’ toys and play areas. Hydrogen peroxide is a safe cleaner to use around kids, or anyone with respiratory problems, because it’s not a lung irritant. Spray toys, toy boxes, doorknobs, and anything else your kids touch on a regular basis. Help out your plants. To ward off fungus, add a little hydrogen peroxide to your spray bottle the next time you’re spritzing plants. Add natural highlights to your hair. Dilute the hydrogen peroxide so the solution is 50% peroxide and 50% water. Spray the solution on wet hair to create subtle, natural highlights. According to alternative therapy practitioners, adding half a bottle of hydrogen peroxide to a warm bath can help detoxify the body. Some are skeptical of this claim, but a bath is always a nice way to relax and the addition of hydrogen peroxide will leave you – and the tub – squeaky clean! Spray a solution of 1/2 cup water and 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide on leftover salad, drain, cover and refrigerate. This will prevent wilting and better preserve your salad. Sanitize your kids’ lunch boxes/bags. Dab hydrogen peroxide on pimples or acne to help clear skin. Hydrogen peroxide helps to sprout seeds for new plantings. Use a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution once a day and spritz the seed every time you re-moisten. You can also use a mixture of 1 part hydrogen peroxide to 32 parts water to improve your plants’ root system. Remove yellowing from lace curtains or tablecloths. Fill a sink with cold water and a 2 cups of 3% hydrogen peroxide. Soak for at least an hour, rinse in cold water and air dry. Use it to remove ear wax. Use a solution of 3% with olive or almond oil. Add a couple drops of oil first then H2O2. After a few minutes, tilt head to remove solution and wax. Helps with foot fungus. Spray a 50/50 mixture of hydrogen peroxide and water on them (especially the toes) every night and let dry. Or try soaking your feet in a peroxide solution to help soften calluses and corns, and disinfect minor cuts. Spray down the shower with hydrogen peroxide to kill bacteria and viruses. Use 1 pint of 3% hydrogen peroxide to a gallon of water to clean humidifiers and steamers. Wash shower curtains with hydrogen peroxide to remove mildew and soap scum. Place curtains in machine with a bath towel and your regular detergent. Add 1 cup full strength 3% hydrogen peroxide to the rinse cycle. Use for towels that have become musty smelling. 1/2 cup Peroxide and 1/2 cup vinegar let stand for 15 minutes wash as normal. Gets rid of the smell. Use hydrogen peroxide to control fungi present in aquariums. Don’t worry, it won’t hurt your fish. Use sparingly for this purpose. De-skunking solution. Combine 1 quart 3% H2O2, 1/4 cup baking soda, 1 teaspoon Dawn dish detergent, 2 quarts warm water.

Laundry stain cheat sheet. Good to know. I'd like to print and hang in a frame on the laundry room wall.
Laundry Stain Cheat Sheet! (I complied all of the tips people left in the comments: Hydrogen peroxide also works for blood; Dish soap takes out protein stains - poop, vomit, food stains, blood, grass, chocolate, etc. I use it all the time; Poop stains = sunshine. Seriously, while wet after washing hang in sun and it will get it out. I had some set in poop stains before I did this that are gone now; Buy a product called Greased lightening. I am a nurse and my husband works construction. Haven't met a stain yet it won't take out; Murphy's oil soap works great on grease and oil stains! Pour it on give a little scrub let it set a few and wash!; Also to get Red fingernail polish off of tan carpet, spray the original shaving cream over and rub out in circles! It really works! It all came out!!; Here's a quick fix for white deodorant smears or smudges on shirts, rub the cloth against its own fabric (specifically a discrete piece that has no deodorant on it) this will make it disappear quickly :) ; Dawn dish soap for grease stain ; Try vinegar and warm water to remove hair dye stains from any type of fabric. Keep spraying the vinegar and water mixture directly on the stain. Keep wiping at it until the stain is removed. Clean hair dye stained clothes with dish detergent and ammonia. Soaking cotton and linen clothes in warm water, dish detergent and a small amount of ammonia will remove hair dye stains. ; Murphys soap oil will get out dry erase marker. I used a spatula to scrub with and it worked perfectly!! Also, rubbing alcohol will remove permanent marker stains if you do it asap! ; Candle wax from Carpet--Place a thick (grocery store type) dry paper bag on the carpet (make sure no inked logos etc. are on it because that ink can possibly transfer to the carpet - just cut those portions off of the bag) and use a clothes iron. The paper will soak up the candle wax but be careful to not have the heat of the iron so hot that it might melt the carpet if the carpet is of synthetic fibers (almost all are synthetic these days). Just keep ironing back and forth on the paper portion only while rearranging the bag to soak up more wax if needed. ; for oil in fabric -soak in color bleach and oxi-clean for a few hours then wash out. worked for me getting fish oil out my scrubs! (scoop of each) ; (nailpolish on clothes) Fabric 1. Place the fabric face down on a clean white cloth or paper towels and blot with acetone (Caution: Do not use acetone on fabrics containing acetate or triacetate. It will melt these fibers!). 2. Rinse with clear water. 3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 until blotting no longer transfers the stain to the cloth or paper towels. 4. Apply a prewash stain remover. 5. Launder. ; Toothpaste also works for ink! Just cover the marked up area with toothpaste and let it dry. Wash as usual. ; De-solv it is amazing for anything greasy, ink, lipstick.. Between that and Zout I can get out almost anything. With four kids, that is saying a lot! I don't usually notice stains for 4 days to a week so they don't get treated early. )
