Did you know that washing your clothes with a washing machine impacts the environment? For example, if you use hot water, your washer not only consumes water, it also requires electricity to heat the water to the right temperature. Over time, this increases your environmental footprint. To get an idea of how this looks over a long period of time, the average American household uses over 13,000 gallons of water a year washing clothes alone!
That’s bad for the environment and for your budget. Fortunately, there are some great eco-friendly stain remover alternatives out there that you can apply in the home. What’s more, many of these hacks only require the products and ingredients you have sitting in your pantry already.
For example, you can wash out sweat stains on light garments just using lemon juice and salt! All you do is first sprinkle lemon juice onto the area, then apply salt. Let it sit for an hour before rinsing it out. The acidity in the lemon juice combined with the salt acts as a natural bleach. No corrosive chemicals are necessary, and you also help out the environment.
There are plenty of other natural stain remover hacks you can learn, just check out this infographic from Tommy John to learn more about them.
