Simple Healthy Alternatives
Laundry detergent and Softener
I made my own laundry detergent and softener, I tried it.. a few loads in and I must say I really LOVE it!
Here it goes:
1 grated bar of ivory or dove soap
1 cup borax
1 cup washing soda (found it at home hardware)
20 drops of Essential oils (lemon, citrus bliss, lime...)
Mix it all together in a bowl and fill it into a tall Tupperware or other container, store it safely away from kids or pets reaching it.
Use 1 tablespoon for small and 2 tablespoons for large loads.
2 litre epsom salt (fine)
40 drops lavender essential oil
30 drops tea tree essential oils
20 drops lemon essential oils
(Or choose your favourite, I have used slightly less oils then what’s recommended.)
Put into a large glass jar
Use 1/2 cup for medium to large loads and 1/4 cup for small loads
You can add 2-4 drops of lavender to an unscented dryer sheet, wash cloth or a sheep ball to further infuse fresh scent into your laundry.
My cloths come out clean, fresh and soft with a light scent to them.
Love it ❤️ I’ll never go back 🌟
