doTERRA Laundry Tips
Essential oils may be used to help clean and sanitize your laundry.
- In the Dryer:
- Add 10 drops of eucalyptus to each load to kill dust mites or fleas.
- Add 10 drops of lemon to help further deodorize and sanitize.
- You may also add several drops of essential oils to the rinse cycle, such as lemon, lavender or Citrus Bliss™ to help further soften and deodorize the load.
- Instead of using toxic and irritating softening sheets in your dryer, place a washcloth dampened with 10 drops of lavender, lemon, melaleuca, Citrus Bliss™, or another essential oil.
While the oils will not reduce static cling, they will impart a distinctive fragrance to your clothes. Over drying is the primary cause of static electricity. Remove your clothes from the dryer when you can sense a little dampness. Then fold or hang immediately if possible.
