I switched over to using Thieves Household Cleaner for my laundry an cleaning about six months ago. There are bare spaces on my shelves because this one product is all I need. That alone is a good enough reason for me to use it. I use one capful, or 1 teaspoon, in each load of laundry along with 1/2 cup Borax powder as an enhancer. When I find a stain on my clothes, I spray on a bit of the cleaner full strength and rub it in… usually it disappears. My white loads are even whiter than they were with bleach. I occasionally let the whites soak for a few hours before starting the wash cycle. I love knowing that I am doing no harm to Mother Earth while benefiting so completely from Thieves Household Cleaner. This is a huge case of less is better!
