Ingredients to Keep Handy:
b) Detergent powder
e) Baking soda
f) Laundry detergent
Step 1: Treat Difficult Stains
There will be some stains on your clothes that are more prominent than others. You need to tackle these first. Add 2 tsp. of vinegar, 1 tsp. of detergent powder and 2 tsp. of water in a bowl. Mix well and apply it on the stains. Let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
Step 2: Soak the Garment
After pre-treating difficult stains, now you need to clean your entire garment. Soak your stained clothing in a bucket of water and add 1 cup of baking soda to it. Let your stained garment soak in this cleaning solution for an hour.
Step 3: Wash Your Clothing
While a machine wash is effective, hand-washing will allow you to scrub the stains. Fill ½ a bucket with warm water. Add 1 cup of vinegar along with a mild detergent to it. If you prefer to hand wash your clothes, you can use a detergent powder such as Surf Excel Easy Wash. It is easily available in the market. Place your stained garment in the bucket and scrub using a clothes brush.
Step 4: Rinse
Once you take your washed garment out of the bucket, rinse it under tap water until all the detergent is washed off.
Step 5: Dry
Leave your clean garment to dry naturally on a clothesline. However, avoid putting it to dry under direct sunlight.
