My Best Laundry Hacks

My Best Laundry Hacks

by Terri Bonin

Having a big family means that laundry is BIG. ALL.THE.TIME.

Since we have made the choice to decrease the toxic load in our home, it’s been such a fun journey figuring out what works for us when it comes to switching out everyday products for clean and safe ones. The cool thing about that is, because YL products are so concentrated, a little bit goes a very long way. So, our household cleaners and soaps end up being LESS expensive than any other item you can find in the grocery store. When it comes to laundry, I’ve come up with a fun recipe to help that ever so important laundry soap stretch out while still keeping our clothes clean.

We LOVE this recipe, and it is so quick and easy to make! Win, win, win!


  • One bottle Young Living Thieves Laundry Soap

  • Bottle with pump! My favorite are these on Amazon.

  • Distilled Water

  • Thieves Household cleaner

  • Citrus fresh, Purification or one oil of your choice


  1. Pour two cups Thieves laundry soap into empty bottle.

  2. Add almost (not quite) 2 cups clean water

  3. Add two capfuls of Thieve household cleaner.

  4. Add 5- 10 drops of Citrus Fresh Essential Oil (or any oil of your choice)into container.

  5. Optional: add another 5 drops of your favorite essential oil into each container as well. I love just adding some more Thieves for a stronger scent. PLUS extra stain fighting abilities 😀

  6. Close bottle and rock back and forth and upside down without shaking until mixed well.

There you have it! Quick, easy, and you can make your bottle of laundry soap last months longer than normal with this tips and tricks! Enjoy!


ps…Do you wonder if you can use essential oils with your family?

They’ve been an absolute game-changer for our family, providing emotional support, as well as health and wellness support! If you’d like to learn more about essential oils and supplements be sure and email our sister site here:
