How long will this mixture last?
There are not hard & fast answers to this, but I have had some for over a year as a test & its still fine.
If you go through the Laundry Butter rather quickly (say within a month or two) & you are happy with the one fragrance, then you can add it upfront. If its likely to sit for a long while you are better of preserving the benefits of the oil until the time you need them. Either way you can't really go wrong.
Because of the washing soda you should avoid aluminium. You should also test first when using on porous surfaces or wood.
Is this safe for septic tanks?
The ingredients are mild, safe & biodegradable which should not affect the bacteria in septic tanks like harsh chemicals can.
