Is there anything better than the feeling of getting into clean sheets at the end of a long day? Soft, fresh and comforting… it is hard to beat!
Clean sheets and clothes are an important part of everyday life—who wants to look or feel unkempt after all? That is why it is necessary to have a laundry regimen that is up to the task of cleaning everyday messes. Laundry soap, dryer sheets and fabric fresheners are often made with chemicals and preservatives to help extend shelf life, fight stains and promote that “laundry fresh” aroma that we all know and love. What we should not love is these unnecessary additions.
Laundry room staples, such as laundry soap and dryer sheets, can be made with all-natural ingredients to the same effect as other products—without the drawbacks. Using essential oils helps naturally clean, disinfect and aromatize clothes and linens. Here are a few to consider.
Aroma, Aroma, Aroma. Other than adding a delightful, fresh from the garden aroma to laundry, Lavender is highly beneficial for its natural antibacterial properties. It is also great for use in homes with sensitive skin or children, as it is quite gentle.
A strong oil, Tea Tree is powerful for fighting off harmful germs and bacteria that may be on dirty clothes. It is particularly beneficial to use this oil when cleaning sheets during or after sickness, such as colds.
Made with Lemongrass and Orange essential oils, this 100% pure blend is perfect to add to laundry applications or clothing drawer scent balls/satchels. This sweet and refreshing oil adds not only a delightful aroma, but helps fight stains and bacteria. For these reasons, Citrus Splash is great for use with active wear.
