It’s a day that every mum hates – laundry day. It’s probably the most boring yet inescapable chore we all face. But because nobody else will probably volunteer to do the job for you, we have found the simplest solutions for your laundry dilemmas.
Here are a some quick laundry hints for making washing day a little easier without spending your whole day on dirty, piled clothes.

In a large pot, add one cup of white vinegar per two litres of water. Bring the solution to the boil, then pour the hot liquid into a bucket. Add the socks and let them soak overnight. The next day wash them as normal – they will be white and bright.
