This is cheap and compares to Tide with Bleach Alternative. Use 2 Tablespoons per load. Mix equal parts: borax, washing soda, Oxygen Cleaner, and powdered SUN laundry detergent. This really gets the stains out and whitens and brightens! Any powdered laundry detergent can be used in the recipe and mix it in a ziploc bag that has been closed! You can use Oxyclean for the Oxygen cleaner, but I use the off brand
I like to keep one towel (and clean ratty one) that I use to throw in the dryer with each load of laundry. The dry towel helps cut down on the drying time with helping absorbing the wetness of the load. I noticed my drying time cut by 10 minutes for most loads (sometimes towels or jeans are a little less). Helps saves electric and a good use for an old towel~!
Put two used dryer fabric softener sheets in one load of laundry, it works as well as one new sheet. A box of fabric softener sheets will last twice as long.
I keep track by keeping the used sheet on top of the dryer by itself until I do another load of laundry...the third load of laundry always gets the two used sheets. After using the two dryer sheets together, I use them as an easy, static free way to clean the dryer vent and then toss.
