    • You will need a one gallon container. • First, add the baking soda to the plastic container. • Next add 1 cup of water to start with. • Slowly add the vinegar to the bottle as the vinegar and baking soda will start to fizz. • Then add the rest of the water, swirling around & cover, venting the top a few times. • Last add the essential oil. • Add 1 cup in your final rinse cycle for each load but give the bottle a good shake to stir up the essential oil if using.
