  • Oh but make sure you get the 100% pure Australian oil. A lot of companies mix it with other oils, which isn't as good.

  • I add tea tree oil to all of my laundry. It's a natural germ killer, and it makes the laundry and washer smell fresh. It's especially great for front loading machines because it prevents mold and that musty smell that those machines can get. It also makes the laundry softer.

  • I'm not crafty like that so I have nothing to add but that's a good idea, lol.

  • You can get it anywhere. Target, Walmart. It's like $8-$10 for a 2 ounce bottle, which goes a long way. I got a few eyedropper tops, and I had like one dropper to the soap dispenser and maybe a half to the softener dispenser. You can use tea tree oil for pretty much anything. Mix it with water in a spray bottle for a countertop cleaner that will disinfect and smell fresh. Use it to clean the garbage disposal. Use it to remove sticky residue from bandaids or price stickers when you buy something. Use it to repel ants around the house. Dilute it for a skin toner. It's probably the best product in my house.

  • Tea Tree Oil is good stuff and can used for so many things. I think that everyone should have it in their house. ;)
    Love the tip you gave sendcheer, I never would have thought of that. Very clever and I may be giving it a try when I clean out my daugher's closet. Thanks!
