1.Quell oversudsing - Since, of course, we are all very careful in how much detergent we use in our laundry, we never have too many suds. But if someone overfills ... you can eliminate excess suds with a sprinkle of salt. 2.Dry clothes in the winter - Use salt in the final laundry rinse to prevent clothes from freezing if you use an outdoor clothes line in the winter. (Con't)
3.Remove perspiration stains - Add four tablespoons of salt to one quart of hot water & sponge the fabric with the solution until stains fade.

I recently started using soapnuts for my laundry, dishwasher & general cleaning. Great for people, the environment & eliminating several products for one.224
Soap Nuts are actually berries. They are also good for people with allergies & anti-microbial (good for the septic system). I make a liquid with mine for the laundry & scent it with lavender & orange essential oil
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.
