Okay, I asked if this worked because these have *NEVER* worked for me - and they are possibly the first reason I started purchasing EOs. (So, happy results in long term, but none for original intent)
Tried this weekend: We have lots of different salts here, and have coarse kosher salt. Mixed it with EO. Left overnight. Washed 2 loads: One also went into the dryer, the other is hang dry.
Comment on the page Kiwimoose linked indicated that laundry detergent just washes away oils.
That would be my understanding too, but at my stage of brain decay I do not trust anything my brain says.
So, can anyone help/hand hold?
I would dearly love to scent my laundry and the storebought scented soaps are horrid and allergy triggering. I can handle Downy Infusions, but they are soooo expensive.
Searchign now for 'ask a chemist' websites that cater to morons like me. heh heh
