15-20 drops essential oil of your preference
Scissors
Sealable container
INSTRUCTIONS
1. Cut the towels into squares, about the size of your outstretched hand. Fold in thirds.
2. In a sealable container, add the vinegar and essential oil, then simply place your folded towels in so that one end of each touches the vinegar. They will automatically begin to soak up the mixture.
3. Keep the container sealed and simply select a towel or two to add to your dryer for each load.
4. When the container dries up and the towels have been used, simply add more vinegar and essential oil and put the towels back in!
