Like many others, I am sure you have seen or heard of the term “laundry stripping”. For me personally I had only ever heard of it being used for cloth diapers, and was curious to find out what it could do for my everyday laundry. The idea behind laundry stripping is that you are to soak your desired laundry in a combination of cleaning ingredients for several hours. This process will release any embedded dirt and gunk that a regular wash just can’t get out.
I was skeptical after seeing some other tutorials and thought “this can’t be real” My laundry comes out fresh and clean, how much dirt can be left behind after its been through the wash?
Well let me tell you.... “shocked” is what I was when I saw what was left over in the tub. I tried the method out on a few clean towels first and I was so grossed out that I proceeded to strip the rest of my towels, kitchen cloths and bed sheets.
Stripping my laundry has made such a difference in the way that my towels and sheets feel now and you can bet that I will be doing this every 6 to 12 months to keep my laundry fresh and clean. So if you are about to replace your old towels or sheets because maybe they aren’t as absorbent or smell the freshest after being washed, why not give this method a try!
