So it was time to make more homemade laundry detergent and the
two younger kids got in on the stirring action this time. :) And I think
it made a difference!!! This batch seems much more gelled.

I added 25 drops of lemon oil to the batch this time for a stronger,
cleaner smell and I love it!!!!!!

In looking for the essential oils I discovered a great health food store in
Huntsville, off of Oakwood. Ok, I didn't discover it but I had never been
there before or knew they existed. :) Good prices too and wonderful
organic yogurt covered pretzels.

I made my own Febreeze and antibacterial counter top spray the same day
I don't much like the smell of the antibacterial spray (it has Tea tree oil
in it and I just don't like the smell of that stuff) but the Febreeze rocks. :)

You must be talking about Foods For Life by Kroger. I love that store. Their prices are outstanding.

Ever heard of Lemon Myrtle? More antibacterial/antiviral than tea tree oil. VERY STRONG. More "lemony" than lemon. If you ever smell lemon and lavender on me, it's myrtle oil. Take me to that store some time.

I have not heard of Lemon Myrtle... I'll have to try that next batch. All I knew of that had the antibacterial was Tea Tree Oil. Thanks!!!!
