Forgetting laundry in the washer stinks.  Quite literally.

So I needed to fix stinky laundry, stat!  Oh, and did I mention that I need to do it naturally? Yeah.

Do you forget your laundry in the washer like I do?  Oh my word, I do it A LOT!  I always mean to remember to throw them in the dryer right away, but seem to forget about half of the time.  Please tell me I am not alone in this.   I’m not alone in this, right?

Ok, good!  I’m glad it’s not just me!


So short of just running the load again and wasting some more soap and a ton more water, there had to be some way to fix this little mistake without going the entire distance, yet again!

Essential oils to the rescue!

Seriously, essential oils are like a superhero in this house.  Of course they have the obvious health benefits, but oh my word, half the time the day-to-day conveniences that they offer are almost even better than the wellness stuff.  Not that I don’t like the wellness stuff…..but fix my laundry, too? You got me, there. YES, PLEASE!

Ok, so I am guessing by this point you are sitting there saying “well, tell me, too!”  So I won’t hold out on you.  It’s super easy and it works really well.

So let’s say that I may have forgotten a load in the washer for, oh, maybe a day, and it maybe is smelling a little….let’s say…musty.  Yeah, they’re musty.

The magic is when I run them through one more rinse cycle, but add 3-5 drops of Purification essential oil blend to the water before it runs.   Then I let it do its’ thing, and boom, fresh laundry!

Forgot the laundryBest. Tip. Ever.

Oh, my friend Rebecca tells me that you can use Lemon essential oil the same way if you are in a pinch, too, and don’t have any Purification.  But you wouldn’t be without Purification, right?  It’s probably the best household oil ever! I thought so wink.

So tell me, do you have any tips for reversing the “forgotten in the washer” smell?  Share with me in the comments!
