    Unclog shower drains w/ salt, baking soda & vinegar. Repinning because this works like magic! :)

    Only have to do this once every 3 months! If you have a tough clog, add a tablespoon or two of baking soda first, then pour the vinegar…let it sit for 15 -30 minutes and then flush with hot water, amazing! Side benefit to this method: If any baking soda remains, it makes for an awesome cleaning agent to just wipe up your sink! this is like a mini volcano, pour vinegar slowly, it fizzes up a lot!

    When towels begin to get stinky-smelly wash in hot water with one cup vinegar. After the wash cycle is complete immediately wash again in hot water with half cup baking soda. After this cycle dry on hottest temp in dryer.

    Once a month, add a cup of Distilled White Vinegar & 1 Cup of Baking Soda directly into the drum and use HOT water for washing. Then, I add about ½ cup of vinegar into the fabric softener compartment and ½ cup of baking soda into the detergent compartment. Set the wash on “Quick Wash” with HOT water and High Spin Cycle. If the mold situation is really bad,use bleach instead of vinegar and baking soda. But make sure you run a few empty cycles just with hot water before doing a load of wash.
