Lovely Lavender Laundry

IMG_8776copy

We have two dogs. I love them. But if I’m a little late scheduling their grooming appointments, they smell. One day at work I could smell them. On my scrubs.

Are. You. Kidding. Me.

So after work I went to the store and bought all the scented laundry bead smeller-whatevers and fabric softeners. Anything and everything that would prevent me from smelling like my four-legged friends again.

But I was afraid of what I was putting on my skin. Benzisothiazolinone? Ammonium chloride? Polydimethylsiloxane?  Diethylenetriamine pentaacetate? Why do I need all of these to have fresh laundry??

I don’t.

Voilà, essential oils. Five drops on a few wool dryer balls and I have the same outcome without the harmful chemicals. For the fabric softener effect, I’ve read and tried half a cup of vinegar in the wash (put it in the fabric softener part of the washer machine) and it works great.
