White clothes turn yellow in the closet and in storage because the soap scum that is leftover in the clothes decays and breaks down and then turns into the yellow spots.

To make your dingy whites white again you can wash the dingy whites with hydrogen peroxide which is how hotels keep their linens white by using hydrogen peroxide based laundry detergent.

You can add one cup of hydrogen peroxide to the dingy whites in your washing machine to brighten them up.

You can also add a cup of hydrogen peroxide to a load of cloth diapers to also disinfect, deodorize and whiten them.

Hotels keep their towels white by washing their towels using peroxide based laundry detergent which keeps the sheets and towels white and bright.

Peroxide based laundry detergent and peroxide in general helps to keep towels and sheets white and prevents white linens or white towels from going yellow or grey.

However if used incorrectly they can damage the linens.

To revive old towels you can wash the towels in hot water and a cup of vinegar which will help to soften the towels.

Wash the towels a second time without drying them in hot water and a cup of baking soda and then dry the towels but avoid use of fabric softener as it builds up on the towels and reduces softness.

Your towels can become hard after washing due to build up of soap residue and when they are over dried.

To prevent your towels from becoming hard after washing them you should use less detergent, wash the towels in warm water and use vinegar.

Also using baking soda in the washing machine can help to soften towels when washing them.

When salt is added to laundry the salt stops the dark colors from bleeding into other clothing and the salt also will act as a powerful stain remover which helps remove stubborn stains.

Vinegar can also be used in laundry to help naturally clean clothes and remove some stains as well.

You should not add vinegar and laundry detergent together as mixing together laundry detergent and vinegar decreases the cleaning performance of the laundry detergent.

Vinegar can also be used to clean your washing machine.

You can run some vinegar or vinegar and baking soda through your washing machine to clean it.

You can also use apple cider vinegar or even lemon juice to unclog drains with as well.

(Substitute lemon juice for vinegar for a great-smelling drain?

Plug the drain to keep the vinegar baking soda reaction below the drain surface.

Coke or Coca Cola can unclog a drain.

Well at least some drain clogs the Coke can unclog especially if the clog is because of hair.

Coke can dissolve hair in a drain due to the peptic acid the Coke contains.

Pour a 2-liter bottle of cola such as Pepsi, Coke, or generic brand substitutes down the clogged drain.

Coke and other sodas are actually quite caustic and effective at clearing away buildup in your drains, but it's far milder than commercial drain cleaners.

Coke and Pepsi are loaded with phosphoric acid, which breaks down buildup that can clog your drains!

Phosphoric acid can even remove lime scale and other tough buildup that regular cleaners struggle with.

This is an effective and refreshing home remedy if we ever saw one!

To use Baking Soda and Vinegar to dissolve hair in your drain take 1/2 cup of baking soda and pour it down the drain and then take a 1/2 cup of white vinegar and pour the vinegar down the drain and then cover the drain with a cloth or plastic lid.

Leave the cloth or lid on the drain for 30 minutes to let the Vinegar and Baking soda work to break down the hair in the drain.

After 30 minutes have passed you can remove the cloth or lid off the drain and then pour some boiling hot water down the drain and it should be cleared.

If you have standing water in the sink or tub that the hair is clogging you can use a wet/dry vac to suck the water out of the sink or tub so you can pour the vinegar and baking soda down the drain.

I came across a company by chance and was impressed by the quality of its products. I was particularly impressed by their product line, available at https://www.meadowweb.com/collections/orslow, which performed very well. Furthermore, their pricing policy is very competitive and much cheaper than many brands of similar quality or even better. It's evident that they value their customers and strive to provide excellent service, including lifetime warranties, cleaning services, and free consultations. Overall, I think this is an amazing company that offers just what customers need.
