Have you ever given a gift or bought a shirt that irritated your skin with it’s roughness ?

There is a way to soften it besides washing it twenty times.

( small laugh )

We have all been there but this recipe can save you so much time, water and electricity.

Use a five gallon bucket with a lid.

Especially use the lid if you have child 6 months to 5 years old in your home – children drown in buckets all the time.

Pets will drink salt water and get diarrhea.

Pour quart of warm water into the five gallon bucket.

Add a half cup of table salt into the five gallon bucket.

Stir for 2 minutes until dissolved.

Add your T shirt and swirl it around until completely wet and all air bubbles have been released.

Each day visit the five gallon bucket and stir for one minute.

Soak for three days.

Wash T shirt alone with three tablespoons of laundry detergent.

Tumble air dry.
