Better Laundry Tips
I don’t know many people that like doing laundry—especially after a big trip. Fortunately, there are ways to keep your travel clothes looking their best with minimal effort. Here are some great laundry secrets and shortcuts compiled by Downy Ball. These tips include:

  • Buy a sneaker dryer bag to eliminate the loud banging from your shoes.
  • To prevent color fading, toss your clothes in the wash with a teaspoon of salt for a brighter look.
  • Wash dark clothes inside out to keep them from fading. The detergent won’t drain the color and this easy trick will keep favorite shirts and pants looking newer longer.
  • Save time, energy and money by throwing a dry towel into the dryer with wet laundry—this will reduce moisture in the machine and speed up the drying process.
  • Remove underarm stains with a homemade recipe instead of bleach or stain sticks. Mix Dawn dishwashing liquid, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda to create a scrub that gets stunning results.
  • Remove grease stains with a piece of chalk. Even if you have already washed a garment hoping soap and water would do the trick, that stain isn’t a permanent part of your wardrobe and chalk can still save the day.
