5 unexpected things that you can clean with laundry detergent

The stuff had more uses than you think
Laundry detergent is a powerful cleaning agent. But did you know that it can do much more than just clean your clothes? The stuff can be multifunctional in your household. For example, you can use both the liquid and powder version for your drain, oven or car. We have listed seven things that you can clean with laundry detergent.

1.  Unclogging the drain

Is your drain clogged? Don’t call a plumber just yet; try this trick first. Pour about 60 milliliters of laundry detergent down the sink, then (slowly) pour a liter of boiling water down the drain. Hot water and liquid detergent work together to remove the blockage. This saves you another visit to the plumber.

2. Making all-purpose cleaner

It is also perfectly fine to use laundry detergent to make all-purpose cleaner. To do this, mix 80 milliliters of bleach, 4.5 liters of water and a teaspoon of laundry detergent together. It works surprisingly well on walls, in the bathroom and on almost any other surface in the house.
