The other day I was doing laundry and I had just brewed. So when I came back into the apartment I noticed the massive glorious hop aroma (you all know what i mean). I love that smell after i brew. So i started thinking. What would happen if i had laundry detergent that smelled like hops? I would love that!!! So fresh and so clean clean!

my son throws a small amount of leaf hops into a linen bag and hangs it in his bedroom.

And let's not forget the natural anti-bacterial properties of hops.
