- Permanent marker
- 32 ounces Distilled White Vinegar*
- 1-2 teaspoons Essential oil*
Add your essential oil to the vinegar container and shake well to incorporate. Label your container to let others in your household know that it contains essential oils and is NOT for culinary purposes.
The vinegar mixture should be diluted with water before being used in your laundry. For regular sizes loads, combine 1/4 cup of vinegar mixture with 3/4 cups of water. For large loads, use 1/2 cup of vinegar mixture and 1/2 cup of water. Add the diluted mixture to the fabric softener dispenser at the beginning of the wash cycle. If you do not have a dispenser, add the softener at the beginning of the rinse cycle.
This will leave a faint essential oil scent but you will not smell vinegar on the rinsed and dried clothing. The vinegar helps soften your clothing, and aids in reduction of static in the dryer phase. This softener also works well with air dried or line dried clothing.
*Never use vinegar on Dry-Clean ONLY garments.
*Use recommended precautions when using essential oils.
