I have shared before some household cleaners I use in the post titled Time to Clean the House. With a very small investment of essential oils you one can make all the cleaners you will need for your home. Since Bill and I bought a new to us dryer, I needed to make something that would reduce static and soften the clothes. I use vinegar for each load of laundry, but I wanted something that was like fabric sheets. With some research and study using a few books I have at home, I found an incredible fabric softener and all I needed was two old socks and tea tree essential oil. Now I have kept the boys old socks for cleaning and I am glad I did.
You need two old socks. If you are raising or have raised
teenage boys, you should have plenty of these. Ignoring
how dingy they look...
put about 15 tea tree drops on the foot of one sock.
Roll it up.
Then take the second sock and put the first sock in the toe,
and roll up the second sock like above.
My kids rolled their socks like this to play indoor basketball...
or warball oops I mean warsocks.
Then toss this sock in the dryer with every load.
When the smell of the tea tree is gone from the socks,
repeat the steps.
Your clothes dry wrinkle free and they do not have any smell.
On to the sink.
I have a porcelain sink
it is not easy to keep the sink white and clean and I have
resorted to using bleach to keep it bright and white.
A simple cleaner that works so easy~
Dry the sink.
Pour baking soda in the sink
then sprinkle the baking soda with some
dish soap. Let sit for a bit.
Then scrub with cloth!
