I'm not really a 'DIY'er. It's not so much my thing. I'm not very good at following recipes and generally if someone says 'Hey - do this...' I say 'YOU do that'.
I put aside my contempt of being told what to do and researched a bunch of different laundry detergent options. I kind of mixed a few of them up and yesterday made my first batch!
I decided to just do one load worth at a time because I didn't want to make a big amount and then hate it.
Here is the recipe I used -
4 tbsp Dr. Bronners Castille soap - baby - unscented
1/4 cup Borax
1/4 cup Super Washing Soda
4 drops YL Purification Essential Oil
4 drops YL Lemon Essential Oil
4 drops Lavender Essential Oil
Just dump each item into the washer with your clothes!
and you guys - I almost died and went to laundry detergent heaven when that washer stopped and I smelled those freshly washed clothes. Mmmm. So fresh and so clean, clean.
I'll probably only put the Borax in when I wash stinky workout clothes, just to get out that extra grime.
Next I'll tell you guys about my DIY Dryer Sheets because I am having SO MUCH FUN getting my house toxin free.
