Let's continue our series on laundry room ditch and switch opportunities with two fun DIY products! We're talking... a scent booster and a stain stick. Whoop!
I rarely use either of these because I think the hacked Thieves Laundry Detergent does an awesome job all on its own but for stinky towels or extra stained clothes... they're great to have on hand and they'll prevent you from picking something toxic up at WalMart or Target. Yay!
LAUNDRY SCENT BOOSTER
1 cup Unscented Epsom Salts
2 tablespoons Baking Soda
30 to 40 drops Essential Oils
Mix all of these ingredients together in a small bowl and pour into an airtight container. I reused an old scoop from our Thieves Dishwasher Powder and throw a scoop of this scent booster in with the Laundry Detergent when I want extra smell good clothes, sheets and towels! Some of my favorite oil combos are Citrus Fresh, Lemon/Thieves, Stress Away and Eucalyptus/Lemon.
DIY STAIN STICK
15 mL Thieves Household Cleaner
15 mL Thieves Laundry Detergent
Add these two ingredients to a 30 mL roller and shake well. Roll onto tough stains right before washing as a pre-treatment.
The 30 mL bottles can be found in our Oiler Must Haves web page. Click HERE to shop. I love them for our Insect Repellent, too. It makes it easier to apply! :)
