Wow I didn't know this.. : Place pillows in the dryer with a "couple of tennis balls to help get them back to their “fluff stage” and kill germs with the high heat. This is sooo important...I actually learned about all the molds that can grow in pillows if you don't do this and let me just say...DO THIS. Scary AND gross."
Keep this in mind if you start seeing lots of spiders around your place. Natural spider killer or preventer... take one cup of vingar, one cup of pepper, a teaspoon of oil and liquid soap. Put it into a spray bottle and spray along the outside of your outside door and along windows; refresh after it rains.
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!
