This long-forgotten gem of a cleaning agent may be used with a little water or vinegar to lift even the most stubborn stains. Unattractive grout driving you batty?

Also, I think you might want to buy in bulk if you were going to use cream of tartar this way.
DIY Fabric Whitener It is SO simple and can’t believe that it works. You take one cup of cream of tartar (used in baking for some frosting to make them white, so that’s why this makes so much sense) and three cups of water. Mix together in a clean bucket and let your-at one time white shirts- soak and enjoy a fresh white shirt after washing in a regular cycle.
Use Vinegar and Baking Soda to Recharge Your Towels
Pinner says: Over time, towels build up detergent and fabric softener, leaving them unable to absorb as much water and smelling funky. Recharge them by washing them once with hot water and one cup vinegar, then a second 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!
