I'm talking about baking soda people and all of it's goodness!! It is easy to find and affordable too. This powdery substance has multiple uses and I will take you through the uses including your sheets.
Washing your sheets with about a cup of baking soda leaves the clean and crispy.
Mixing a cup of baking soda and lemon juice in equal parts makes a natural, mild bleach. This helps with the stains or just give the sheet some freshness. You may want to soak your sheets for about 20 minutes before using detergent. Or if you are satisfied with them you can skip the whole harsh detergent step. But remember to use plenty of water to rinse your sheets because some people react to detergents but don't even know it. We wouldn't want you sleeping on I'll call it 'unfinished laundry'.
Another tip with baking soda is you can use it to clean the floor tiles, that's if you have tiles on your floor. Add about two spoons of baking soda to your bucket and fill it up with water. Mop the whole area and let air dry. You could follow up with detergent if you wish.
