How to Do Laundry : How to Wash Clothes With Baking Soda & Water


Hi, I’m Ginger Walker, owner of Clean Junkies.
We’re going to talk about how to do laundry, and wash your clothes with baking soda and
water. Baking soda has so many uses. I’m sure you’ve heard of all the different uses, that
it can be used for. Gets out odors. Can be used as a stain treater, pre-treater. You
can use it as a detergent. You can sprinkle it on the carpet before you vacuum, and it
just gives you a good, clean, fresh scent. So if you were going to make a pre-treater,
you would just add a little bit of baking soda. A little bit of water to our baking
soda here. Make a paste. Just stir it up with your finger, is fine, so it’s going to be
toothpaste like consistency here. Once you get that all mixed up, you’ll go ahead and
put it on the stain. Rub it in really good. Give it a few little friction rubs, and you
can let that sit for a little while, as well, so that’s a pre-treater with baking soda.
Another thing you can do, is your just going to put it right in your cup, and you can do
this in the sink with hand washing, or you can use the machine. Either way, whatever
way you want to do that. Go ahead and put it in there. Just like a powdered detergent,
it’s nothing special, and that’s all you’re going to use, as your baking soda. Again,
the benefits to that are, you’ve got your odor control, and it takes the odors out.
It makes things really soft as well. My hands right now are really soft. The other thing
that it does is whitens your whites, so that’s another thing that you can use baking soda
for.

  1. i add a small amount to water when washing dishes or glassware and it makes it sparkle……ive not tried adding it to drinking water but heard its good for your health as it makes the body less acidic.

  2. i cant see a prob using baking soda only for laundry privided you treat stains or stubborn stains first (just like in this clip)…….ive used salt on things like cups inside if they have become slightly discoloured with tea,etc but a couple of times a year only as its slightly abrasive – i use a toothbrush to apply

  3. ……i wouldnt put it in washing machine with clothes as it possibly could rust metal fittings on clothing or affect rubber seals/pipes,etc?……just a thought too – some drops of natural scented oil could be added to laundry along with soda.

  4. @busybuzzbuzz – i never said to add BS to anything – just water is fine – obviously a boil wash if stains are oily,etc otherwise normal 30 degree wash fine…for stubborn stains ive also made it into a paste and brushed it on specific areas and it does trick fine…at the end of the day everyone really needs to get away from using harsh detergents and chemicals which ultimately will pollute oceans /sealife longterm so shared advice or experimenting with less harmful materials can only be good

  5. I have found that baking soda alone is not enough for my laundry. However baking soda does enable me to only have to use a very small amount of detergent.

  6. Washing soda (sodium carbonate) is a more powerful laundry agent than baking soda (sodium bicarbonate). It removes oils so effectively you don't really want to get water with washing soda dissolved in it on your hands any more than absolutely necessary, because it will leave them dry.

  7. I got this pair of merino wool blend socks, good for size 10 to 13 and I am 10 and 1/4, but it kept getting loose and I have to pull it up. This guy said to put it in washer and wash with hot water, then dry it in the drier it will get smaller. Is that the right way does that work? Won't it ruin the sock since it recommends warm water to wash?

  8. Nonsense.

    Baking soda deodorizes? Really? Add it to household ammonia and sniff. How’d it work?

    It’s not a bleach. It will dissolve acidic compounds, some of which may be colored and have odors.

    It’s used as a slightly alkalinity water softener. It’s partially neutralized washing soda. Your advice sounds like you read advertising hype printed on the box.
