As the evenings start to cool off more, it’s nice to cozy up in your favorite blanket...but it needs to feel soft and cuddly, too! Fabric softener definitely brings the softness, but it also brings toxic chemicals that I’d rather not have on my skin.
A few years ago, I stopped using commercially made fabric softener, and started making my own. Did you know that Epsom salts soften fabric?! Give this a try...
1 - 64 ounce bag Epsom salt
40 drops Lavender
30 drops Tea Tree
20 drops Lemon
Pour Epsom salt into a large glass or metal bowl. Add essential oils and stir to combine. Store in glass jars. Use 1/2 cup for medium to large loads, or 1/4 cup for small loads. Place in wash cycle at any temperature.
