|Scented Laundry Softener Crystals|
Since I started this DIY laundry products, I have struggled with static cling during the winters when the air is dryer. There have been times I have "almost" went back to my "downy" but I have this little personality quirk that DOES NOT allow me to be defeated so easily ;0)
I have to thank Jillee@ onegoodthingbyjille.com for this awesome tip. I have well water so I have been adding Kosher salt to soften up my wash water, but I just never put it together like she did. Here is her recipe, and I must admit IT WORKED!
Laundry Softener Crystals
2 Cups Epsom salt
20 drops essential oil of your choice
THATS IT! mix it up and use 1/4 cup per wash. Add this to the washer at the beginning of the cycle along with the laundry detergent! I love this, no more missed rinse cycles and there was no static cling in my towels! I used 10 drops of Lavender & 10 drops of Orange essential oils. You can make as much or as little as you want, experiment with your favorite scents. A good rule of thumb is to use 10 drops of essential oil per 1 cup of Epsom salt.
