How to Use Essential Oils for the Laundry Room

Stain Removal

There are many different ways you can use essential oils for stain removal. You can use them to pretreat many stains that might get in your laundry. You can use them for pit stains, for grass stains, and for other stains!

Remove Clothing Odors

If you have clothing with odors in it, lemon is a great essential oil to help get that out. You might also use lavender or something with a nice smell along with purification oils to get the smell out. Use the oils in the wash with the stinky clothes and then see how much better they will be when they come out.

Remove Odors from Washing Machine

You can also use lemon essential oil to clean the washing machine with nothing in it. This is great to do after several cycles of laundry anyway, or any time that you notice an odor left behind in the machine after doing laundry.

DIY Laundry Detergent

A popular recipe includes 3 cups washing soda, 3 bars of Castile soap, 3 cups of Borax, and ¼ -1/2 tsp of your choice of quality essential oil. Lavender, lime or orange, and grapefruit are popular choices.

DIY Dryer Sheets

You can make your own dryer sheets by using a couple of drops of essential oils on a wash cloth or a microfiber cleaning cloth and tossing it in the dryer with the laundry. Super simple!

Keep Fabrics Soft

You can also use essential oils like lemongrass or a purification blend to get your fabrics nice and soft. This is especially useful for towels and linens. You can make a fabric softener with Epsom salt, lavender oil, melaleuca oil, and lemon essential oils.
