 Homemade Fabric Softener


Vinegar Laundry Softener

Vinegar is the best fabric softener, I know of. Aside from being a natural softener, it also removes soap residue in the washing machine and reduces static in the dryer. You can add vinegar to a Downy ball and throw it
in with your laundry, or pour vinegar directly into the fabric softener dispenser if your washing machine has one. I have even added 1-2 drops of my favorite essential oil to the vinegar in the softener dispenser. Lavender brightens and fights stains, It also offers a calming effect, and peppermint can help fight tough odors on clothing.

Pre-mix your fabric-softening vinegar by using the recipe below

1 gallon white vinegar
30-40 drops of essential oil (where to buy 100% pure essential oils)

Lavender-scented softener is one of my favorites, or a combination of sweet orange and lemon when I need a pick-me-up on laundry day! A third suggestion is to use peppermint for an invigorating minty scent.

To use:

Just shake well before each use and it’s ready for the rinse cycle. For small or average loads add 1/2 cup to the rinse cycle, or a little more for large loads.  About ¼ cup works perfectly for full loads.)

Note: Once clothes are dry you will not notice the scent of this

Your clothes will take a few wash cycles to lose the coating from commercial detergents and softeners, but the sooner you get started the sooner your family will be free from harsh chemicals and perfumes.
Try the above solution next time you do laundry… Enjoy
