Laundry Win!

So I am the "Queen of Maybe Pinterest Knows".  Seriously. 2015 if you call your mom or best girlfriend needing a recipe, knitting stitch, dieting tips, identifying a toddler rash--whatever. ..they will all say "let's check Pinterest! "

In my Pinterest feed I see all this cool stuff---but are they really doing it?!

This week I read several pins about laundry softeners--the dangers and the costs. So I tried one and here is my results after 4 loads!

Easy Peasy!!!

***add 1 bottle of lavender essential oil to 1 gallon of vinegar. 
Then use that as your fabric softener in your wash. I added about 1/8 cup to each load. Every load smells great and is so soft!

Okay this is pure scientific magic!
Pull out that box of aluminum foil and tear off about 6 or 7 sheets 12 or so inches long. Wad them up into a ball and toss it in the dryer with the next load! It worked for me!

**the ball will come out smooth 

**keep reusing the same ball
(When should you toss it and start a new one? The very moment your ADD takes over and you want to make a new one!)
