Most people think increasingly more and more about the exorbitant prices, the global chaos and the warnings regarding the health. Increasingly many things we use every day, started to be replaced with their natural version. For some certain chemicals there is a natural substitute.
Many of us have seen laundry detergents that contain optical brighteners which make our clothes look very clean. Most of bleach come from benzene, an extremely dangerous compound. On the other hand, these chemicals do not break down and remain in the water where the clothes were washed and thus destroy the groundwater.
Very very hot water
A cup of powdered laundry detergent
A cup of powdered dish washer detergent
A cup bleach or chlorine
½ cup of borax
Leave the laundry to soak in this mixture of solutions for as much time as possible from several hours to overnight for best results. If there are colored spots, the laundry has to be soaked in the solution for more than 3 hours, and if you just want a lighter shade, 3-4 hours are enough.
Wash your laundry normally after an easy rinse with lukewarm water. The discolored laundry can be washed with this mixture by hand or put in automatic washing machine in a normal cycle, but don’t mix it with other laundries, because the residues of chlorine can discolor other garments.
