I stopped buying laundry softener ages ago. But I do still want my whites to be white, colours to stay bright and most importantly – for all the laundry to have a wonderful, fresh smell.
I’ve never been too fond of the smells available in laundry softeners: I’ve always found them too pungent and not my kind of scents anyway. I’m more into wood-y and forest-y smells – options that are rarely available.

Making this laundry booster is so easy and you can make heaps of it in one sitting. One large pot of 5kg lasts for ages and since it’s pure bicarbonate of soda, you can use it around the house for whatever cleaning task at hand: from improving the cleaning power of your laundry detergent to sprinkling it in the toilet bowl or using it to clean your sink or mixing it in with your floor cleaning solution. It’s multi-purpose and still makes your laundry smell great.
