Laundry Bomb

There’s nothing quite like fresh laundry, especially when hung to dry in the sun. Essential oils can be a great way to personalize your laundry experience. You can add your favorites to unscented laundry soap, fabric softener, or dryer balls to enhance the aroma of your laundry…or…if you want to add an extra level of fresh and clean scent you can make our #DIY Scoop-able Laundry Bomb Powder. We love the combination of Lemon and Lavender EOs, but you can use whatever combo you like the most.

 

Citric acid excels as a fabric softener because it neutralizes the alkalinity of laundry detergent, acting as pH adjuster which brings your laundry’s alkaline pH closer to that of our natural skin pH.  This makes it an excellent non-toxic alternative to commercial softeners.  Additionally, because citric acid works effectively to remove limescale it may prolong the life of your washing machine with regular use!

 

We are here to tell you it is no “old wives' tale” when people say adding baking soda to your regular amount of liquid laundry detergent will make your colored clothing brighter and your whites whiter. Baking soda is a natural deodorizer and cleanser, and it softens the water as well, which means you can get away with using less detergent. Much like citric acid, baking soda also helps keep your machine clean!

 

Lemon EO is a great addition to this recipe for its fresh light aroma and disinfecting and deodorizing actions. Lavender EO has a relaxing aroma and is renowned for its ability to help promote calmness and wellness. It's also said to help reduce stress and anxiety! Just take a moment to imagine that wafting in from your freshly washed laundry while you read a book in the sun. Yes please, sign us up…NOW.

 

To make this scoop-able laundry bomb, follow the recipe below.

 

In a large airtight container combine

 

-2 cups Baking Soda

-1 cup Citric Acid

-20 drops Lemon EO

-15 drops Lavender EO

 

Stir or shake well and add 1/4 cup to each load of laundry!

 

May you and your laundry bathe in the sun together in a #LemonLavenderBliss
