THANKS AHHHHHH!! To Faith my DARLING wife, for having me here writing on YL oils that made a difference in my life!
This is a true story. People in the story are real!
Haze ah haze! Not making it easy for me as a penguin dad! With 2 kids (Juju and Solsol) constantly wanting me to keep them company and play with them, I tend to become more forgetful.
Between me and my darling wife Faith, house chores are divided unequally and one of them is laundry. Like I said, sometimes I totally had forgotten that there are clothes in the washing machine waiting quietly for me to hang them up to dry. By the time I remembered their existence, they started to shout in my nose with a “wet dog” aroma throughout the whole house! OMG! PHEW!
It doesn’t help when the haze are so bad that hanging clothes outdoor just add more stench to it. The clothes can hardly be sunned anyway since the haze blocked out all the sunshine goodness. So before anyone faint from the odour, I have tried and test ways to deal with it!
Setup a diffuser by diffusing Purification EO near the hanged clothes. Have it placed in-between the wet stinky clothes and the house area. This creates a invisible barrier that acts like an air curtain in those supermarkets entrances/exits (unverified wishful thinking). The odour will be greatly reduced at the same time thanks to the properties of Purification EO.
Dropping 2-3 drops of Purification EO into the washing machine during the rinse phase can also remove odours, giving it a fresh smell of Citronella and Lemongrass. (Idea given by a lady whom attended my class! Sorry cant remember who…)
Placing cotton balls dripped with a few drops of Purification EO into the wardrobe and cupboard can also remove the musky smell, instead of using mothballs*.
*”Mothballs are nearly 100% active ingredient, and the active ingredient may be either naphthalene or paradichlorobenzene. Each active ingredient can cause different health effects if the exposure is high enough. Mothballs slowly turn from solids to toxic vapour. When you smell mothballs, you are inhaling the insecticide.” – National Pesticide Information Center
So there you have it. One of my cheats for house chores! One oil, many uses!
