Washing soda crystals in the laundry

December 12, 2012 Filed under Cleaning hints and tips

I have used the washing soda crystals in a rinse in my washing machine (best to be dissolved in warm water it dissolves easier) it helps to take stains out of clothes.

It also cleans out your washing machine and hoses as well as acting as a softener for hard water.
