    • 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.
