This Thrifty Thursday, I’m sharing a cool way to whiten your whites with another ‘green’ product you might have around the house! How thrifty is using 1 product for multiple uses?

Looking for a whitening boost for your laundry? One of the cool tricks that I found on the ‘people against dirty’ blog discovered is an alternate use for Smarty Dish, the phosphate and bleach-free dishwasher detergent – a laundry booster!

They tried it out, and it worked!

1.  Throw a Smarty Dish tablet (can be either Go Naked or Pink Grapefruit) into the drum of your washer (even in an HE machine), then add your method laundry detergent as you would normally.

2.  Make sure to only do this with warm or hot water wash cycles. The tablet won’t dissolve completely in cold water.

3.  Use 1 for a regular load, 2 for a big or nasty load, or remedial whites.

4.  Run your washer as you would normally and dry as you normally do, too. Perhaps give line drying a try, as it uses nature’s energy to dry your clothes!

Smarty Dish is safe for colors, too.  It also boosts performance on food and outdoorsy stains (grass & dirt).
