In my last post, I was talking about why you should at least think about making your own laundry products. I know it isn’t terribly exciting, but it is an amazing way to save money and keep toxins out of your home.
One of the most toxic of all laundry products is dryer sheets. Lucky for you I have a DIY version that you are going to love.
You can use any oil you like, so feel free to play around.
Choosing an Essential Oil Company to Trust with Your Health is a Big Decision
I recommend Rocky Mountain Oils because I honestly believe they are the best oils for the money. They have strong ethics about oil production and grow their oils in their native environment. All of their oils are either organically certified, organically grown or wild crafted with no adulterating. (Most oils you buy at the local health food store are adulterated with propylene glycol or a similar substances. )
I love that they are NOT an MLM, so there are no required orders or membership fees. They offer free shipping, so it makes sense to order even if you just need one bottle!
DIY Lemon Dryer Sheets
1/2 cup white vinegar
8 drops lemon essential oil
Airtight glass container
Cut cotton clothes into small rectangles. (Old dish cloths and
T-shirts work great.)
Mix vinegar and lemon oil together. Place clothes in the container
and pour liquid on top of them to dampen. Close until ready to use.
To use, remove a cloth from the container and squeeze excess liquid
back into the container. Add to the dryer with wet clothes. When
finished, add the cloth back to the container for future use.
