One Surprising Use of Baking Soda
Have you ever had a piece of clothing that whenever you washed it there was still a funny odor on it. Yes, some materials are like that; you would wash them, rinse them until the water is clear, and when they are dried, they will have a smell. For example, there are some underwear and bras which tend to retain the smell of sweat, even after you’ve washed them. Often times, these garments are made of other materials besides cotton.
Sometimes, fabric (clothes) softener such as downy and snuggle might hide the scent; however, this is not always the case. Whenever you have a situation, where fabric softener does not do the trick then you switch to baking soda!

How to Use The Baking Soda To Freshen Your Clothes
- Full a basin/tub/bucket of water. The water can be warm or straight from the tap. For me, I use the water from the tap.
- Measure baking soda according to how many pieces of clothes and the amount of water. For me, a quarter cup of baking soda is good in a liter of water.
- Add the baking soda to the water and stir until most have dissolved
- Add clothes to water, making sure that the water is sufficient to cover the clothes.
- Soak for half to one hour
- Remove, then wash as normal, then rinse and hang in the sun to dry.
- If you are accustomed to using fabric softener, do not use in this instance. You want to make sure that the baking soda has gotten rid of the scent.
- Usually, the first wash removes the unpleasant odor. However, I recommend using this formula the next time you wear the garment.
