I keep seeing commercials for the new Downy fabric softener crystals and mention of the Purex softener crystals in blogs that I read through. You know that I will not use those in my house because of all of the cancer and allergen causing chemicals that those products are laden with, but I still was on the lookout to better my laundry soap recipe with something natural that works along the lines of what those products claim to do. Look no further Hippy fans, I have found the answer that has added so much more softness to my laundry that I can’t believe how easy it was! Even the Hippy husband was impressed by the softness that this added to our clean laundry!
I add one cup of this Laundry Softener Crystals to my Homemade Laundry Soap and mix it all together, using the same amount of laundry soap as I usually do. I still fill the liquid softener container in my washer with vinegar as an extra added softener boost in my wash.
The Softest Laundry EVER Laundry Softener Crystals
1 cup ice cream/rock/Epsom salts (any one of these will work, just pick what you have around the house)
40 drops essential oils (I chose to use a combination of 20 drops sweet orange essential oil, 10 drops lemon essential oil, and 10 drops tangerine essential oil)
Mix ingredients together and add 1 tsp to your laundry. I just add the cup to the batch of laundry soap that I am mixing up and mix it all together.
