Got tough grease and dirt?????
An easy, less harsh way to cut grease and tough dirt on clothes while washing is to add (in addition to your normal detergent) ½ cup to 1 cup baking soda to the wash cycle and 1 cup white vinegar to the rinse cycle.
The vinegar is a softener so there is no need to use fabric softener. The two will clean, deodorize and break down the grease and dirt.
If you notice a bit of gunk left in the bottom of the washer, Orange Hand Cleaner/degreaser is a safe and gentle to remove grease and won’t leave that icky residue.
