DIY Lavender Laundry Detergent Recipe:

When we moved from the big city (public sewer,) to rural Michigan (septic,) all of a sudden I had to care what went down my drain. The pleasant surprise is that when I ditched all the expensive and toxic laundry scent boosters, detergents, fabric softeners and dryer sheets: my skin and sinus allergies magically disappeared!

1. Put on eye protection and facemask to avoid breathing in the small particles while mixing.

2. Mix all ingredients thoroughly in bowl.
