I looove my EOs!! When they are in the wash they are for antibacterial purposes, not smell. To get the smell to stay in the dipes Wash/dry and then when they are dry, add 10+ (the more the merrier and the larger the load, the more drops needed) drops of Lavender (or whatever EO) to a DRY wipe and run the dipes in the dryer about 10 min on high (remember, these are DRY dipes). The smell will stay until washed again. HTH!!

Thanks! I'm doing dipe laundry now, so I'll be sure and try this when they're dry.
