Laundry detergent, powdered or liquid, is a powerful cleaning agent that can be used for many household chores. For many of these uses, you only need a container or a bucket to blend that concentrated laundry detergent with water or with bleach to make a great household wash.
7. Pretreat Stains
You can put a dab of straight laundry detergent on your stained clothes, rugs, or window coverings. Use an older toothbrush to rub it in and then wash normally. It should disappear. On upholstery spots, use a dry detergent, rub it in with a damp cloth, give it a few minutes and then brush it off. It may need to be repeated more than once.
6. Washing Your Pride and Joy
Laundry detergent is great for washing your car. Just dilute one tablespoon of laundry detergent with water in your wash bucket. Now you’re ready to wash away that dirt and mud!
