While vinegar is mainly used to create the perfect salad dressing or other delicious meals, it is so much more powerful.
It can help kill bugs in your house, especially those pesky lanternflies.
However, vinegar is also amazing for your laundry! Here are 5 vinegar laundry hacks to make your clothes soft, white, and clean.
Vinegar Laundry Hacks
Here are a few of my favorite vinegar laundry hacks that are so easy to do!
1. Remove Stains
My grandma always used vinegar before detergent became so advanced. The best thing is that it still works!
Depending on how big your load or how bad the stains might be, simply put ½ cup to 1 cup of vinegar while washing your clothes.
It can help remove red wine, oil, coffee spills, and more!
2. Cleaner Clothes
One woman swears by this next technique. All you need to do is add ½ cup of vinegar and pair it with just 1 tablespoon of baking soda.
Pour this alongside your detergent. However, you need to pour it halfway through the wash cycle.
Your clothes will turn out to be softer and will feel like brand new clothes! This such an easy hack to have cleaner clothes.
3. Whiter Clothes
I’ve heard this one before as I’m sure most have as well. If you pour some vinegar at the start of your wash with whites, they will get brighter and whiter.
4. Softer Clothes
You could even get rid of your fabric softener altogether and simply use vinegar because it’s that good.
Vinegar will make your clothes softer after washing and drying them. It’s a cheaper solution if you can stand the smell when you pour it in!
5. No More Smelly Clothes
Even though no one likes the smell of vinegar, it will even get rid of all the smelly clothes you have.
Depending on how big your load is, use between ½ cup to 1 full cup of vinegar.
Who knew vinegar had so many amazing benefits for your laundry! Next time you put in a batch, throw some vinegar in and be amazed.
Who is going to try these amazing vinegar hacks? I know I will be!

My concern is that if you use vinegar in a washer that uses hard water would you need to clean your washer alone before using it to wash your clothes.
Do you use White vinegar?
What type vinegar? cider or white?
I’ve been doing this for 40 years! It has always worked.

Not at all. I use vinegar in all my wash. It’s great for smelly towels and socks. It really does clean your clothes better.
