Washing machine, a small amount is enough: the laundry smells wonderful for days


The preparation is straightforward: mix 1.5 cups of coarse salt, a half cup of baking soda, and 30 to 40 drops of a natural essential oil in a bowl (the amount depends on your preference). Once all the ingredients are combined, stir well with a spoon.

Once mixed evenly, transfer the concoction to an airtight container. Shake the container well to ensure a thorough blend, and make sure it's securely sealed to avoid any spills. You now have scented salts ready to be added to your laundry.

Using the DIY laundry scent booster is easy. Just add one or two spoonfuls directly into the drum of the washing machine along with your laundry, depending on the load size.

Continue with your regular addition of detergent and fabric softener to the designated drawer and start the washing cycle suitable for your garments. It's important not to skip the fabric softener.

Fabric softener plays a crucial role, especially in winter, by reducing static electricity. Not only does it make clothes softer, but it's also highly functional. Many unscented options are available on the market, allowing your personal scent booster to shine.
