To get cleaner laundry,add about 1/4 cup white distilled vinegar to the last rinse. The acid in white distilled vinegar is too mild to harm fabrics, yet strong enough to dissolve the alkali in soaps and detergents. Besides removing soap, white distilled vinegar prevents yellowing, acts as a fabric softener and static cling reducer, and attacks mold and mildew.
To avoid wrinkling, remove clothes from the dryer and hang immediately.
To remove wrinkles from clothing or linen, put in the dryer along with a wet sock or washcloth for 15 or 20 minutes.
