Washing: Grandma’s laundry hack will keep yours smelling nice for ’15 to 20 years’ | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker


TikTok and Instagram creator Julia, who posts vintage-inspired clothing and hacks under the username @_boringbb_, has received many hand-me-downs from her Grandma over the years. As well as passing down her vintage nighties and dresses, Julia’s Grandma also imparted some useful information on how to store your clothes while ensuring they smell fresh for longer.

In fact, her handy hack could keep laundry and garments smelling nice for as long as “20 years”. In a video that has amassed 107k “likes” on TikTok and 40K “likes” on Instagram, Julia shared her “grandma preservation hack”, saying: “How grandma stored her laundry”

Julia said: “Anyone else rip out those magazine fragrance testers and shove them in your drawers to keep your clothes smelling nice? I did up until a few months ago.”

While looking through her Grandma’s drawers at her clothes, Julia noticed there were bars of soap alongside her garments.

“I was like ‘why do you have that in there?'”, said Julia. “And she said: ‘Oh honey, you didn’t know? That’s how you keep your clothes smelling nice.'”

Julia continued: “Apparently if you take a nice neutral wrapped bar of soap, this one is lavender, but you can use cotton or whatever, it will last 15 to 20 years. I had no idea but I tried it out for a few months and it’s amazing. My clothes smell amazing. Definitely give it a go.”

Julia added that you should make sure the bar of soap is in a non-offensive scent and is wrapped in paper rather than in plastic. 

“Try to find a scent that would not overwhelm someone and simply place it in the corner with your clothes or linens,” she explained. “It will make everything very subtlety smell great and last so many years.”

However, Julia added: “Make sure it is wrapped in paper so the scent can come through.” If you can’t find a soap bar that is wrapped in paper, you can unwrap your soap from its plastic packaging and wrap it in brown paper before placing it in your drawers or wardrobe.

Depending on the brand of soap you opt for, you could spend as little as £1 on the hack. Sainsbury’s is currently selling the Pears Lemon Flower Bar Soap for £1, or they also sell Special Collection Green Tea and Rose Luxury Soap, which comes wrapped in recyclable paper, for £2.10.

Viewers of Julia’s video have shared their experience testing the hack in the comments. A commenter named Melissa said: “Can confirm, I’ve had the same bars of soap in my dresser for almost 12 years after my mom put them in when I was a kid.”

Another user named Salam pointed out an additional benefit of using soap in your drawers and closets. She wrote: “I do this in all my drawers, closets, and anything that is seasonal that I put into storage.

“Keeps clothes fresh and deters pests. I also slide a bar or two into any checked bag when I fly to prevent the weird aeroplane smell. My mom even puts a couple of bars into sachet bags and ties them to the underside of her bed.”

However, when using soap bars you should consider how warm the area you are storing them will be. A TikTok user named Ajax pointed out: “You just have to be a little bit careful if you live somewhere with humidity sometimes the soap bars will get squidgy.”
