Scrub a paste of baking soda and vinegar to remove collar rings. Spray full strength vinegar on yellow perspiration stains, mustard and ketchup too. Fluff up cotton and wool blankets with a cup of vinegar in the final rinse. Vinegar will help refresh and brighten stale bed and table linens after storage. And it’s a great economical replacement for fabric softener, reducing static without adding fragrance.
