7 surprising tricks that show why you should always have a fabric softener at home
The fact that one product is aimed for a specific purpose doesn't mean it can not be used for other purposes.
Many products you have at home have unrealized potential and can be used for different and unexpected purposes.
Take a fabric softener, for example. Not only does it soften your clothes, it also serves as an excellent detergent.
This may sound strange, but in many cases, fabric softener can do a better job than many regular cleaners. Below you will find 7 things that will be cleaned when you clean them with a softener.
The windows are dirty? No problem! Put some fabric softener in water and you get the perfect solution for your dirty windows. Put some on a cloth and begin to wipe. The dirt would quickly disappear, and when the windows were finished, dust would also be rejected afterwards.
Fabric softener not only makes miracles for your clothes, it also works great on surfaces like parquet floors. Mix a softener with warm water and use a rag to wipe the floor. It would keep the dust away and give the floor an amazing shine. And it never hurts that the floor has a divine smell.
Just like with the floors, fabric softener with warm water shines the furniture and keeps the dust away. Spray it on the furniture and wipe with a cloth or paper towel to make them look like new.
Wait, what? It sounds odd but it's quite effective. Dry and broken hair usually gets frizzy, but spray a mixture of softener and water and this barbers trick will leave you with a soft, shiny hair with a wonderful smell. After you have finished taking a shower, dry your hair with a towel until it is damp. Then spray some of the mixture and let the hair dry as usual.
Another place where fabric softener works wonders is in the shower. Mix a softener with water and rub with a sponge. Stubborn stains and calcium stains will be a thing of the past.
6. Car seats
Are there stains on your car seats? Don't use concentrated cleaners. Instead, use a mixture of hot water and .. you guessed it, fabric softener! Spray on the stain and rub well, and that's all.
7. Stainless steel
Yes, softener works wonderfully here too. Put some on a cloth and wipe it. You will be able to see your reflection on the shiny stainless steel!
