How to Add Baking Soda to Laundry?

Baking soda is a natural deodorizer and cleanser. Adding it to laundry is a great way to gently clean your clothes to remove tough smells and stains. Using baking soda can also help soften clothes, boost your detergent’s power, and keep whites white. As a bonus, it helps your washing machine stay clean, too.
Washing Laundry With Baking Soda
Do a pre-soak if necessary. If you want to use baking soda as a deodorizer, it’s a good idea to soak it in a baking soda solution overnight. This gives the baking soda time to really go to work getting tough smells out of your laundry. It works well for clothes, towels and other items that are smokey, musty or sweaty.
Start a load of laundry. Place your dirty laundry (and pre-soaked items) into the washing machine. Add detergent as usual. Begin the wash cycle so that the machine begins to fill with water. Allow it to fill completely before continuing.
Add 1/2 cup baking soda when the machine has filled. Pour it straight into the filled washing machine so that it dissolves into the water. Finish running the wash cycle as usual.

Dry the clothes outside. This is the best way to dry clothes that previously smelled musty, smoky, or sweaty. Drying in the sun and wind will help to freshen them. Even on a cold day in winter, you can dry your clothes outside. Just choose a place that gets plenty of sun.
Spot Cleaning With Baking Soda
Make a baking soda paste. Baking soda makes a great natural stain remover. It’s gentle enough to use on almost any type of fabric. Mix a tablespoon of baking soda with enough water to make a thick paste. Alternatively, mix the baking soda with hydrogen peroxide or white vinegar.
Apply the paste to the stain. Lightly rub it into the stain. Make sure it covers the entire stained area, overlapping the edges. Allow it to sit on the stain for 15 minutes.
Rinse away the baking soda. Run it under warm running water to rinse away the baking soda along with the stain. For more delicate fabrics, you can wipe away the baking soda using a dampened cloth.
Repeat the treatment if necessary. Some difficult stains require more than one treatment. Apply a second round of paste to the stain. Let it sit for 15 minutes, then rinse it away. If the stain remains, you may need to use a chemical stain remover or take the item to be professionally cleaned.
Dry Cleaning With Baking Soda
Sprinkle musty clothes with baking soda. Items that are dry-clean only can be spruced up using baking soda. While it won’t actually clean the clothes, it will absorb musty smells and make your clothes smell fresh.
Let the baking soda sit overnight. It may take awhile for the baking soda to completely absorb the musty smell. Place the bag and baking soda in a cool, dry place to sit overnight.
Air out the clothes outside. Open the bag and shake off the baking soda. Use a soft brush to remove excess baking soda if necessary. Hang up the item of clothing in the sun. Let it stay outside and blow in the breeze for a few hours to finish airing out.
Repeat if necessary. Strong smells may require you to treat the clothing more than once. Repeat the process of sprinkling the item with baking soda, letting it sit, and airing out the clothing. If it still smells musty, you may need to have it professionally cleaned.
