Using Salt In The Laundry

This Sparked Me!

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.

3.Remove perspiration stains - Add four tablespoons of salt to one quart of hot water & sponge the fabric with the solution until stains fade.
