    I love lemon in my homemade laundry soap concoction. I mostly make handmade bar soap, but when I get enough scraps, I’ll whip up some of my famous laundry soap with a hefty amount of lemon essential oil. It really works great for sanitizing the clothes and giving the clothes a nice, fresh, natural scent.
