■Fill a plastic (I use glass) container with baking soda then add a few drops of essential oil to preference (start with about 2 drops per cup). Stir well with a wooden stick or spoon (not one used for cooking). Seal the container and set aside for two weeks.
■After two weeks use it as a laundry booster (1/2 cup per load in the wash or rinse cycle–your choice). Do not add any commercial fabric softener.
I made this and use it for carpet fresh, now I am going to try it for a laundry booster. I hope it will help get things clean and make them smell good in the process.
