Vinegar makes wool and cotton fabrics extra soft and fluffy, removes soap residue, and breaks up oils and grease.  It also dissolves uric acid, making it perfect for babies’ diapers.  Choose whichever essential oils you like best, based on their properties and aromas.

You need:

  • 1 gallon vinegar
  • 10-30 drops essential oil(s) of choice. Some favourites are: Cedarwood, Eucalyptus, Geranium, Grapefruit, Lavender, Lemon, Lemongrass, Lime, Mandarin, Peppermint, Rosemary, Sage, Spearmint, Sweet Orange, Tangerine, Tea Tree, or Ylang Ylang.


Add essential oils to the gallon of vinegar. Shake well before using.  For regular or small loads, add ½ cup during the rinse cycle, and for large loads add 1 cup.
