I have a scent allergy and I have found this works well with Borax which also is a fabric softener I can then control the scent with essential oils.

Could also try pre-dissolving the baking soda (making sure to beat out any lumps) in a minimal amount of cool water before adding to the fabric-softener-hot water mixture.

Maybe mix it in a blender first?

I can’t see why it’s clumping, I add it slowly, a little at a time but suddenly it’s in lumps, and it’s not that cheap in the UK LOL (I have to wait until I find a deal and stock up)

it still works but does kill the spray mechanism.

I’ll try adding less next time, see how it goes

when ever I try this the baking soda always clumps. I have tried adding it to the hot water first, tried adding to the bottle after, tried adding to the bottle before the water. it always goes into lumps.

any tips on stopping this?

If the baking soda is lumping, use a little less and see if that eliminates the clumping issue.
