Homemade Fabric Softener

by GettingFreedom on October 22, 2008

Well, last week I did homemade laundry soap, so why not do Fabric Softener this week?
This is really easy, and I have noticed that my clothes are just as soft, if not softer than with the commercial fabric softener.
I use an empty baby wipe container. To this I add 2 cups water, an 1 cup vinegar and 2/3 cup conditioner. For one reason or another I always have more conditioner left when my shampoo is all gone. This is a good way to use it up, or you can use it in place of shaving cream! Or, I’ve went to Dollar General and bought Suave Lavendar Conditioner for .75!! It smelled wonderful.

Use a fork, or a wisk and stir it all up until it is incorporated. Don’t get too wild with it, or it will become frothy.

I use an old dilapitated sock that is way beyond wear for my dryer sheet. When I need it, I reach in, ring it out a bit, and throw in the dryer as usual.

One batch will last me about a week, sometimes shortly over. Just depends on how much laundry I have. A batch costs me about .40 to make, so about $1.60/mo. I will say that there is a slight vinegar smell sometimes when I pull the laundry out of the dryer. I don’t know if I just don’t notice everytime or what. But, the vinegar smell does not linger on our clothes.

It works for me!! For more WFMW posts, visit Rocks in My Dryer.
