How To Naturally Make Your Laundry Fragrant

1 Comment

If you want to avoid using fabric softener or any other chemicals to make your laundry smell nice, there are several natural methods you can use that will make your laundry smell fragrant.

  • Essential Oils 

The best way to get anything naturally fragrant is to use essential oils. Simply fill a spray bottle with water and add a few drops of an essential oil of your choice. Then, spray the natural formula on your clothes before putting them into the washing machine.

  • Baking Soda

Sodium bicarbonate or baking soda is a natural cleanser and deodoriser. For top loading machines, just add 1/2 a cup of baking soda along with your detergent whilst it is filling. For Front loading machines, add baking soda into the tray or inside the machine just as you would with laundry detergent.

  • Epsom Salt

Epsom salt is a natural pure mineral compound made up of magnesium and sulfate. It has numerous benefits including being a great laundry scent booster. Mix 1-2 cups of Epsom salt and 2 tablespoons of essential oil in a bowl or jar. Add 1-2 tablespoons of this mixture straight into your washer before adding clothes and wash as normal. 

  • Wool Dryer Balls

Wool dryer balls are a natural alternative to using fabric dryer sheets. They reduce drying time, wrinkles and can help make your clothes smell good, naturally, too. Just add a few drops of essential oil to a dryer ball before each use.

  • Air Dry

Naturally air drying, especially on sunny days, will help freshen up your clothes as the sun helps to eliminate bad odours, giving your clothes a refreshing smell.
