Getting rid of clothing stains naturally

Posted by Bismah Abdelgawad 2 Comments
Bleach seems like the most simple and effective method to get rid of stains in clothing. This is so far from being the truth. While bleach can be effective in removing stains, using too much too often can lead to damage in fabrics over time. There are also the negative health risks associated with using bleach including respiratory issues, headaches, skin reactions, vomiting, and linked to cancer. My biggest peeve with using bleach is the awful smell it gives off. So what alternatives do we have to using bleach to remove stains from our clothes. There are natural and non-toxic products that can be used. These are inexpensive and in most people's homes already.

Kindness Has No Limits

Thinking back when I was a young child, I remember that one of the most important things my mom instilled in me was to treat everyone equally by showing kindness.
During my preteens and teen years I spent time reading to children with developmental disabilities. I also volunteered at both the senior’s home as well as the animal shelter and helped in community clean-ups. I didn't do it because I had to. I did it because I wanted to and I enjoyed every minute.
