I have been using homemade detergent for close to a year now. I love the way it cleans, the price, and the fact that it last forever. What I don't love - the smell - or lack thereof. I have tried to add essential oils to the detergent with no luck. It smells nice for about two days and then...nothing. I considered buying dryer sheets and adding a nice fresh laundry scent that way, but our dryer repair man said they damage the drum. So I resigned myself to having fresh, clean, odorless clothing. Until today! I was changing a load and thought why can't I make my own dryer sheet, of sorts? It wouldn't have fabric softeners in it so it shouldn't damage the drum. So I took an old cloth nursing pad (I'm sure any absorbent piece of cloth would do), put a couple drops of essential oil on it, and threw it into the dryer. When the load was finished, I opened the door, and a beautiful bouquet of loveliness entered my nostrils! Success!! The nursing pad was still strongly scented so I threw it into a second load. It worked just a great the second time. Now if I can just remember to wear deodorant every day, I could smell good all the time!
