Salt Uses For Laundry Stain Removal: Natural Home Remedy For Bodily Fluid Stains
(Sidney Ohio USA)
Mel has shared her salt uses for laundry stain removal with me. This is a great natural home remedy you can try for all kinds of bodily fluid stains, such as blood, urine, feces, and vomit, for example.
Really bad spots or spots on items that have sat in the hamper for the majority of the week when my kids don't tell me about the spot sometimes take two cycles or extra salt and detergent (just as any heavily soiled load would) but it is nowhere near as much work as it was to remove these spots without the salt.
Mel, thanks so much for this great tip for salt uses for laundry stain removal!
I would be curious how much salt you pour into your washer. Do you measure it or just pour some in?
Update: Mel wrote me back to answer this question for me. She says:
I don't actually measure the salt out at all. I buy the basic cheapy canisters of salt with the pull up spout and I just pull the spout up and pour enough to go around my washer (standard size top loader) a couple times, if it is really heavy I will go around a few more times. The extra salt that we buy is much cheaper than new clothes so I don't worry too much about the amount... sorry if this is a little vague on how much to use.
I would love to hear from even more people who have used this tip, to hear how it works for you. In addition, if you already do something similar tell me what kinds of stains you do this with. You can share your uses of salt for cleaning, laundry and stains here, or read other tips which have already been submitted.
I hope you enjoy this gift, and stop by again soon!
