There is nothing like warm laundry straight out of the dryer. Well, actually there is nothing like warm laundry straight out of the dryer that smells amazing! Luckily, I have something to help you out with that last part! This DIY Laundry scent booster is only 2 ingredients and will make your laundry smell good. Store-bought brands contain some questionable ingredients, so why not make a non-toxic version at home instead? You can control the scent as well as how subtle or strong it is! Scroll down, I’ll show you how!
What you need
- A natural detergent booster and freshener
- Can be used for so many cleaning tasks around the house
- A cheap, eco-friendly and safe green cleaning ingredient
- Don’t have washing soda? It’s linked above 👆🏾. Orrr, try this alternate recipe!
Ylang Ylang essential oil
- This oil promotes relaxation, helps to reduce stress and tension, and has a soothing & calming aroma
- I like to use Ylang Ylang essential oil, but feel free to use your fave essential oil instead
- You can customize your fragrance in scent, and in strength, so feel free to increase or decrease the amount of drops based upon your preference
Glass air-tight container
- I’m using a glass jar here, but any air-tight container will work
- I often save marinara sauce jars and use them for storage ⏤ they are basically free containers. Just be sure to wash them out first!
- And, if you have any trouble getting their pesky labels unstuck, check out this DIY Goo Gone to help get the job done!
How to make
- Open up your air-tight container and get ready to add in your washing soda. I used 3 cups worth
- Next, add in 50 drops of Ylang Ylang essential oil. If you have a different essential oil fave, feel free to use what you like!
- Close up your container and shake well to combine
- All done!
How to use
- Add your laundry to the washing machine
- Scoop in 1/4 cup of the DIY Laundry Scent Booster
- Run your load as your normally would
- Enjoy your smell-goods!
- This DIY Laundry Scent Booster gets more fragrant the longer it sits, so the longer you wait before your first use, the better!
