    A SUSTAINABLE cleaning guru has revealed an inexpensive trick to boost your laundry and keep it bright using a common kitchen staple. There are numerous products in the market that promise to keep your garments bright and full of colour - however, over time, they can do quite the opposite, especially if used on a frequent basis. 1The cleaning gurus revealed how a cheap baking ingredient can keep your laundry freshCredit: Getty Speaking to The Express, Paula Quazi, sustainable cleaning expert and Smol co-founder, agreed: "Products containing higher concentrations of harsh chemicals will also damage clothes.

Traditionally used in baking, this common kitchen staple is great for dissolving dirt and grime thanks to its alkaline properties. read more cleaning storiesIN A SPIN Mrs Hinch...

If you're still trying to find the exact answer, it's been too long. Unlike doing a load of bath towels or cotton sheets, though, you can't simply toss a down comforter in the wash on a normal cycle. The chemicals used to dry clean are also too harsh for down. To make sure you're taking special care of your beloved bedding,...
    Donald Trump earned $197 million from appearing on The Apprentice and a further $230 million from deals that followed, tax records show.  The reality TV show and the licensing and endorsement agreements it brought were among his biggest money-makers, The New York Times reported on Monday.  Thanks to a deal he made with producers of the show in 2005 alone, Trump raked in $47.8million because of a deal which entitled him to half the show's profits. The money handed Trump a financial lifeline, the Times said Monday. He had relied on heavy losses across his business empire to help nearly erase his federal income tax bill, according to the paper's report Sunday.  The details of the tax filings published Sunday complicate Trump's description of himself as a shrewd and patriotic businessman, revealing instead a series of financial losses and income from abroad that could come into conflict with his responsibilities as president.  The president's financial disclosures indicated he earned at least $434.9 million in 2018, but the tax filings reported a $47.4 million loss. Losses in the property businesses solely owned and managed by...
    SAN ANTONIO – If it stains, it’s bound to end up on your kids' clothing. It helps to act fast to clean 'em up, but if you can’t, a few household items and a good detergent can help. Which is the best laundry stain remover? Here is what Consumer Reports recommends: Crayon: Remove as much of the crayon pieces as possible. Work dish detergent into the stain. After a few minutes, rub the fabric under warm water. Then, wash the clothing on the hottest water temperature the fabric will allow. Use regular laundry detergent and an oxygenated bleach, like OxiClean. Air dry and repeat if the stain remains. Play-Doh: Do not use hot water. Let the Play-Doh dry. Use a stiff brush to loosen it from the fabric. Wash by hand with detergent and cold water. Grass stains: Work in detergent with a toothbrush. Wait a few minutes and toss in the washing machine on the warmest water the fabric allows. Chocolate: Dab off as much as you can. Work in detergent with a toothbrush. Let it rest a few...
    A 9/11 memorial was left covered in soap suds after vandals poured detergent into a fountain just days before the 19th anniversary of the attacks.  Volunteers blamed the bizarre prank on 'disturbed individuals' after finding a mountain of soap and bubbles on the memorial in Yardley, Pennsylvania.  Police told 6ABC that 'it appears someone dumped a few gallons of dish detergent into the fountain'.  Judi Reiss, the mother of 9/11 victim Joshua Reiss, said she hoped the vandals were merely a 'bunch of dumb young teenagers' who needed 'more education' on what the memorial represents.   Vandalized: A 9/11 memorial is covered in soap and bubbles after vandals poured dish detergent into a fountain just days before the anniversary  Clean-up: The soap suds are removed ahead of the 19th anniversary on Friday which will see a socially-distanced memorial event take place at the memorial  'It was a little disheartening. But I know just like with our lives, we can clean up we can fix it up, and on September 11 the garden will be at its most beautiful,' she...
    Noble Energy, Disney, Facebook, AstraZeneca - 5 Things You Must Know Monday Win a 2020 Range Rover Sport SVR and $20k in cash This Sport-Specific Laundry Detergent Is the Only Thing That Truly Deep Cleans My Sweaty Workout Clothes © @hexperformance/instagram Value: 20/20 Functionality: 19/20 Quality: 19/20 Scent: 18/20 Stain-Fighting Power: 17/20 TOTAL: 93/100 Almost exactly three years ago I took a meeting with Drew Westervelt, the founder of HEX Performance laundry detergent, to discuss his sport-specific cleaner and why it was that my athletic apparel was never going to be as grime-free as the rest of my wardrobe. At the time I didn’t understand why one might want to sort their clothing by both lights and darks as well as by detergent type, but the perpetual scent plaguing my workout clothing drawer was more than enough to color me intrigued. I gave it a shot, and 36 months later, I’m ready to confess: I use HEX for about 95 percent of my dirty laundry (outside of cashmere knits and super-delicate undergarments). And...
    A MUM has claimed that the lid of laundry detergent should be put inside the washing machine with the clothes - and it has baffled thousands online.  US-based Amber Miller said on Facebook that while the caps can be used to measure out the liquid, they should also be thrown in with the washing.  2Mum Amber Miller said her daughter Nicolette told her she should put her detergent lid inside the machine with the liquidCredit: Facebook Amber said her daughter Nicolette had told her the caps are “made to be thrown in the laundry” so as much detergent gets on the clothing as possible. She claims this also prevents detergent congealing on the plastic and cleans the lid more thoroughly than hand-washing.  The West Virginia-based mum said: “Mind blown. Go ahead – tell me you knew this.” Thousands of people said they had never heard of the idea before either.  2If you place the cap inside the machine, as much detergent gets on the clothing as possible, claims the mumCredit: Facebook One wrote: “No way – I gave up buying...
