So here on the blog today, we have some handy laundry hacks you can put to good use when you embark on that spring clean you may or may not have been putting off. Read on…

Dealing with Stubborn Stains?

If it’s a grease stain, simply rub some chalk over it before the wash and it will get absorbed during the cycle – who knew?!

For non-greasy-looking stains, try some washing up liquid. Squirt a little on the offending mark, let it sink in for an hour or two and then chuck the garment in the wash as usual.

Vinegar is also a great aid for tackling stubborn stains. Mix it with equal parts water and soak stained clothing before you ring it out and add it to the washing machine.
