I have been working my way over the last year to make our home more chemical free. It is a HUGE under taking but I think one that is very important to be conscience of. With all the recent articles being published on early puberty in girls due to toxins (amongst other things), having a 6 year old in the house definitely makes me worry and think more about this. about this. One of the things I changed recently was our dryer sheets. I used to use the traditional ones until I realized those too where full of chemicals. I have been loving using my essential oils over the last few years and thought it was high time that I used them with our laundry too.
There are just a few simple items and ingredients you need to make these DIY Dryer Sheets:
– cotton cloths (These ones are my favorite!)
– your favorite essential oil (I like to use lavender, tea tree oil, or thieves)
Add 1/2 cup of vinegar to your jar.
Select your EO and add 8-10 drops to your jar.
Roll up your cotton cloths and add them to the jar. Close your jar and turn it upside down and all around to coat the cloths with your mixture. And you’re done!
How simple was that?! I add 1 to each load in my dryer and when I pull my laundry out it smells fabulous. Just wash your cotton cloth and save to do a new batch when you need more.
