    Will the essential oils stain your clothes?

    Does it leave your cloths smelling like vinegar and is there something else you can use if you don’t have the oils and what oils do y’all recommend for a good fresh linen clean smell?

    I get Apple scent hair conditioner at Dollar Tree, mix with half water & pour half a cup in washer to soften water & smells good. Then I use an old washcloth dampened with this mix to toss in dryer. Works for me.
