Rinse Your Clothes with Vinegar Using a Downy Dryer Ball


Use Vinegar in your Downy Ball

What causes your white clothes to become gray and dingy? Improper rinsing is the main cause! The residual detergent will discolor any white over time.

Rinse them a second time, adding a cup of vinegar to the water to remove all soap film.  Or, use a Downy Dryer ball to release the vinegar into the rinse water automatically. Just pour in a cup of vinegar (instead of the Downy) and throw the ball in! This works so well that you may not even have to give the clothes a second rinse.

Not only will they will come out static-free, but fresh-smelling as well. A big plus is that it’s more natural than regular fabric softener and cheaper too!
