Many people think laundry is easy. Just dump in clothes, soap and water, right? In fact, doing laundry well so everything gets clean and garments are preserved is a careful process. Here are some common mistakes people make and how you can avoid them.
Most brands of laundry detergent have a high PH. Sure, they may destroy organic matter like dirt, sweat, and germs, but that same mechanism they use also harms your clothing and skin. One of the great things about our Rockin’ Green is that it’s as close to neutral as it can be.
Most people pump their water out of the ground through a well. As the water travels through soil and rock, it picks up minerals (like calcium and magnesium). Even if you’re on city/town water, it still mixed with rock at one point. Water with lots of minerals is considered “hard water.”
If you have soft water, count yourself lucky. Soft water is water with a low concentration of calcium and magnesium, as well as other harsh elements. It feels slippery and lathers easily. You also won’t see mineral deposits on your pots and pans.
Sports should be an integral part of everyone’s life. They give you a chance to get some exercise without feeling like work. They also teach us valuable lessons about winning and losing to help keep us grounded. No matter who plays sports in your household, stains are usually common.
Laundry is a chore, but it has to be done. Most of us don’t enjoy washing load after load, but there’s no avoiding it. We can, however, speed up the process. Here are some tips for fast laundry.
When it comes to keeping your home clean, we are constantly searching for the fastest, most efficient ways to do so. Luckily for our laundry, the washing machine reduces the amount of time and energy that it takes to clean your clothes by an incredible amount.
Let’s face it. Taking the time to treat stains can feel a little overwhelming especially if you have a family or pets to look after. But stain removal doesn’t have to be scary.

There’s a science to do your laundry. Many people don’t bother and just throw everything (unsorted) into the machine. They use cold water and shake in a random amount of detergent. These people spend more money and time washing their clothes than they need.
