Laundry Detergent Boosters

Laundry boosters are products that you add to the wash to help the detergent work better. Here is information about some of these boosters, many of which also happen to be natural laundry supplies.

First, here are my articles telling how to use these products as boosters, along with using these products in other areas of your home as well.

In Wash Scent Boosters

You may also wish to use scent boosters for your clothes just to add some scent. This is the newest type of laundry supplies to hit the market - they add scent and nothing else (not to be confused with softeners, which add scent and also condition your fabric at the same time).

Here are the reviews I have gathered so far:

Washing And Drying Accessories

Fabric Softeners For Use In The Washing Machine

Many people swear by using fabric softener in the wash, some to make the clothes soft, as the name implies, and others to imbue a certain scent to the clothing. Others don't want to use the stuff, saying it makes clothes heavy and greasy. In fact, if you use too much you can even get a softener stain.

There are two different types of fabric softener, those that go in the washing machine as a liquid (and also a new crystal version by certain companies), and also those that go in the dryer. There are obvious differences between these two types of laundry supplies, so I've separated them out on this page.

First, here is some information on how to make your own softeners, including my recipes, recipes from others, and suggestions for blends of essential oils to use as fragrance.
