I was just groaning about how I need to do laundry today, and I despise doing laundry, but then I thought, why not take advantage of it? Doing laundry is an excellent method of cleansing as is, but here are some thoughts I had as to how you can make this (annoying) chore more witchy!
1. Choose detergents and fabric softener scents that correspond to your intent! A floral scent for clarity, a “fresh” scent for comfort, a tropical scent for rejuvination…. get creative!
2. Pour your detergent in a clockwise fashion to promote your intent, be it calmness, comfort, energy, good rest…. Likewise, pour it anticlockwise to banish exhaustion, bad dreams, or general negativity.
3. Alternative to number 2, infuse your detergent with your intent before pouring it in. I created a little chant you can use!
“Cleanse this cloth
in all its hues
and take the bad away
In its place
put calm and grace
and energy for the days”
Feel free to create your own ideas for laundry magick and add to this short list! I’d love to see what sort of things you might come up with. Now if you’ll excuse me I’ve got some laundry to do. 👕👖💦
