Remove stains and odors with these laundry products
Spills and stains are a fact of life. You can't prevent them, but that doesn't mean you have to wear them on your sleeve. The right laundry products will help dissolve stains and dirt while whisking away odors, without shrinking your fabrics or fading your bright colors. Looking your best is a big part of feeling confident and making a good first impression, which is why it's important to have the detergent, bleach, dryer sheets and more you need to keep your clothes looking great.
The first and most basic thing you need in your laundry room (beyond a washer and dryer, of course) is high-quality detergent. A good detergent will help to wipe out stains and smells, such as wine and tobacco. You have a lot of options to choose from, including scented Gain detergents that make your clothes smell great, concentrated Xtra detergents that take less space on the shelf and high-efficiency Purex detergents for your high-efficiency washer. There are also detergents made specifically for bright colors, whites, delicates and other special fabrics.
Clorox bleach is another important cleaning product you should never be without. Bleach isn't right for every situation, but it's a powerful cleaning agent for those times when you need to remove a bad stain from spilling food or beverages on your shirt. Downy fabric softener is another must-have. Add this during the rinse cycle and your clothes will come out feeling softer than ever before. It's perfect for making blankets more snuggly and teddy bears more cuddly.
Don't ignore what goes on in the dryer, though. Adding Bounce dryer sheets will have an effect similar to that of fabric softener; they'll coat your clothes in a thin layer of softening agents while helping to prevent static cling. Some dryer sheets even promise to help repel lint and hair, so your clothes stay cleaner, longer. If you don't have time to do a whole load of laundry, Febreeze fabric refresher is handy to have around. Just spray it on your clothes to help minimize odors. It's a particularly convenient thing to have around if you live with smokers or are having trouble quitting smoking yourself.
