Here's the scoop - Baking soda is a great way to freshen your laundry and give your detergent a boost.
We are often asked by our customers why we add a scoop of baking soda to all of our loads.
Here are some of the benefits:
While you may know that baking soda eliminates odors in your fridge, it can also do the same for your clothing. It neutralizes odors such as smoke and musty smells. You can pre-treat by adding 1 cup of baking soda into a tub of cool water. Let it soak overnight and wash as usual the next day.
Baking soda added to the washing cycle can brighten whites and colors. If used along with bleach, the baking soda will give the whitening power a boost to your white laundry.
If you have hard water, baking soda will help improve the performance of your detergent.
As a natural freshener, it works well for people with sensitive skin and allergies.
Today there are several laundry detergents that offer baking soda within their products. However, as a commercial laundromat we find it more affordable to purchase baking soda separately and add it along with the detergent.
By adding a little baking soda to your laundry, you have an easy and affordable way to getting your clothes clean and fresh.
