    Lavender Water: Pour lavender water into a spray bottle and give your laundry a quick spritz before putting it into the washer. The scent will linger after drying, keeping your laundry smelling fresh for a long time. You can substitute lavender with rose water or any of your favorite essential oil.
    Citrus Oils: Combine 1 cup baking soda, 1/2 cup borax, 1 cup white vinegar and 20 drops of orange or lemon oil together. Add this mix to your laundry detergent bottle and use as normal.
