Save money making clothes fresh when washing by adding a little baking soda to the detergent you use to wash your clothing.  Baking soda is thrift friendly, and it only takes about 1/4 of a cup to freshen one load of laundry.

Frugal footnotes:

Here are some more frugal tips to freshen clothing and textiles.

 

- Invest in a clothesline.  Nothing freshens fiber like fresh air and the sun.
 
- Put textiles outside for at least some of the drying time.
 
- Spray textiles with  homemade febreze.
 
- Store clothing and textiles in a cool, dry place.
 
- Let 100% cotton clothing air dry. It will also have less wrinkles.
