Laundry DetergentHomemade goopy liquid laundry detergent does not "suds" up for there is no toxic Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SFS). Simply re-use a one-gallon plastic water jug, a commercial detergent container or scoop it out of the bucket you make it in.
RECIPE (for 1 gallon)
Essential Oil combino ideas: Peppermint-Eucalyptus, Rosewood-Tangerine, Lemon-Eucalyptus
Use 1 cup per wash load. High-Efficiency washers can use 1/4 the amount!!
Fabric SoftenerCommercial fabric softeners coat laundry with a film of benzene or chemicals that cripple the mucous membranes to limit one's sense of smell! For two great, cheap toxin-free alternatives to fabric softener use:
(1) 1/4 cup of vinegar (distilled or apple cider) in your rinse cycle [the vinegar smell dissipates when clothes dry!] or
(2) a 1/4 cup of epsom salt along with laundry detergent at the beginning of the wash.
