I have been making homemade laundry soap for a few years now, and I LOVE it. When I came across a pin for homemade fabric softener I knew I had to try it also. I am up for anything that will save me a buck or two! (Aren’t we all?)
What you need:
- 3 cups HOT Tap Water
- 1 cup Conditioner (I used Tropical Coconut from Suave)
- 1 and 1/2 cups White Vinegar
First you mix your conditioner with your hot water until it dissolves, then you add your vinegar and stir. It is just that simple!
- I cut the original recipe in half. (I didn’t want to be stuck with tons of fabric softener if I didn’t like it!) If you want to follow the original recipe it is as follows… 6 cups hot water, 3 cups white vinegar, and 2 cups conditioner.
I was a little bit concerned at first, I mean clothes are not cheap and I didn’t want grease spots or anything on them. Plus, I didn’t want my clothes smelling like vinegar. I decided that I would try the DIY fabric softener on my Husbands work clothes first. I figured that if it left greasy conditioner marks, at least you wouldn’t notice because his work clothes are grungy anyhow!
Overall I was very happy with this DIY fabric softener pin. I was pleased that the vinegar smell had vanished, and I was left with soft comfy clothes that didn’t have any grease spots on them. It was very easy to make and I love that it is made with thing that I already had on hand.
