Step 3: Boost Laundry Detergent

Picture of Boost Laundry Detergent
Use 1 cup of lemon juice in your wash to boost the effectiveness of your laundry detergent.
Lemon juice also works great in blonde hair is a lightening agent... You just soak it...or strand it... Go out in the sun for an hour...and come back in with lighter hair... Has to be the real lemons though... Lemon juice from a bottle will not work... Neither will limes.... A vinegar rinse in your hair will leave it nice and shiny... Only drawback is...the smell(which I personally like..others maybe not so much...lol)

also works as a spot remover on many clothes - dab lemon juice on the spot/stain and lay clothes out in the sun.
I managed to get some banana stains off my sons T-shirt that had been there for some time. :)

White vinegar works just as well for boosting laundry detergent, and it's inexpensive. I buy it in the gallon-size bottles. I always add half a cup to my laundry, but use only half as much laundry detergent. Works wonderfully.

I've been wondering if I can pre-mix the two (vinegar and detergent) in a bottle so I only have one thing to add to my laundry? I don't see why not... Planning to try that.
