Eco Laundry Booster
This easy four ingredient laundry booster is a great way to start incorporating eco friendly DIY products into your home.
Use as a booster to your washing by using one scoop of Eco Laundry Booster and half your usual amount of laundry powder/Liquid.
- Bicarb Soda
- Epsom Salts
- Lemon Essential Oil
- Tea Tree Essential Oil
- Mixing Bowl, cup and spoon to stir
- Air tight jar
The air tight jar I used was from Target or Woolworths.
I didn't have a mixing bowl, so I used the base of our water purifier.
Add four cups of Epsom Salts.
Mix both dry ingredients together.
You can use any Essential Oils you like. I picked Lemon for its fresh smell and brightening properties and Tea Tree for its antibacterial properties.
I have since found out that letting the booster sit overnight helps the oil to distribute and dry out so it does not go into the jar wet.
This eco laundry booster lasted me months and I wash nearly every day! (We have a new baby, so lots of washing!)
I would love to know what you think of this eco laundry booster and if you used different oils.
