I know that laundry is not everyone’s chore of choice – at least, it sure isn’t mine! But I do love to pull out a load of hot, fresh clothes that smell amazing and help my house to smell amazing as well. This laundry scent booster does just that- makes my laundry smell like fresh oranges.
This DIY laundry scent booster was so easy to make and it was literally, start to finish about 2 minutes!
And it only requires 3 ingredients! I wonder if you look at your current brand of laundry scent booster how many ingredients it has? (And how many of those can you pronounce?)
Not to mention how much cheaper it is to make your own versus buying it at the store.
This is simple, mixing the baking soda and the Epsom salt together until they are well blended. Add in your oils and mix until blended. That is all.
1 ½ cups Epsom Salt
½ cup baking soda
30 drops essential oil (I used Wild Orange)
Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container
Add 2-3 Tbsp to your laundry load prior to adding clothes, along with your normal detergent.
The first time I made this I used 20 drops and when I used it, honestly, the scent just wasn’t what I was expecting. Then the next time I made it I did an additional 10 drops, so 30 in total and it was definitely better!
You could easily do a different scent such a Wintergreen, Rosemary or Cedarwood. The options are endless for what smells you use to spruce up your laundry!
Have you ever added essential oils to your laundry? If not, what scent would you use?
