A Great Low Cost Homemade Fabric Softener Recipe…

washing

This homemade fabric softener recipes takes less than 5 minutes to make so you can be using your for your laundry today and the best part is it costs about $.02 per load! Homemade Fabric Softener 3 cups hot water 1 1/2 cups vinegar 1 cup hair conditioner Pour the conditioner into the hot water. Stir (don’t shake) and then add the vinegar. Pour into a gallon, (4 Litre) container. Use the same amount of the fabric softener as you would use of the store bought kind or moisten a rag and throw it in the dryer. You can put it in your Downy balls too.
  • I found that the water has to be very hot to dissolve the conditioner. If it doesn’t dissolve just whisk it or warm up the water hotter in the microwave.
  • If you do need to buy conditioner, something like Suave Lavender from the Dollar Tree works just fine.
  • This homemade fabric softener recipe makes a half gallon, (2 litres) and if you want to make less, you can easily half the recipe.
  • Yes it does work in HE washers.
  • For sensitive skin, you will just have to use plain vinegar. My son has horrible eczema and I can’t use anything with scents on his clothes, so vinegar it is!
