Laundry tip


In a spray bottle mix vinegar and your favorite essential oil, (lavender is my favorite) 10-15 drops would do it. Take a wash cloth and spray it with the solution, I like to over spray but not to saturate. Use this in place of fabric softener as a cheaper solution and truly cleaner clothes. I solemnly swear I am up to good and it does not make your clothes smell like pickles.

    I use 1/4 cup of vinegar and few drops of oil. Vinegar helps keep my lines dry clothes in the summer I line dry everything from getting crunchy. It will also get all the fabric softener out we have used over the winter. It leaves our clothes soft. But I never use it on spandex it will ruin it. Since I have a 100 pairs of yoga pants I wash this and panties separately.

    A few drops of the oil should do it! I usually don't use any the vinegar will disparage and you will never know you used it or not.
