Here’s an easy and inexpensive way to soften your laundry without liquids that have to be added to the wash or dryer sheets in every load.

1/2 cup baking soda

1 tablespoon arrowroot powder

1 tablespoon rice flour or corn starch

1-3 drops of any essential oil you like

Fill a small sachet and keep it in the dryer until the scent is gone.

NOTE: Do not use fabric softener on towels and washcloths (it inhibits their absorbency) or bathing suits.
