  • I just last year learned to soak the whites in baking soda and vinegar overnight before washing-works great!

  • I've heard that any "protein" stains should be washed in cold water. Milk, eggs, sweat, blood. Pre-treat, of course. Then I start the wash cycle, let it soak for a few hours, and then let the wash resume. My washer recently broke, and now without the option to "pause" the wash cycle I notice things don't get as clean (laundromat).
