Homemade Fabric Softener:
- 6 cups of hot water
- 2 cups of conditioner (white / non dyed preferred)
- 3 cups of vinegar
10-15 drops of essential oils of your choice (optional if your conditioner has a strong enough scent)
mix conditioner and hot water in large bowl till conditioner is dissolved completely - Add vinegar.
It will break apart and look very clumpy, I had to break out my wisk. Add you scent
pour and store in container of choice. (I just went with a empty clean milk jug)
Now you can use your fabric softener 3 different ways.
1 - give it a swirl and simply pour 1/4 cup for a reg load (or 1/2 cup for an extra large load) in your dispenser as u typically would
2 - you can put it in a spray bottle and spritz it on a washcloth and throw it in the dryer with your load
3 - you can soak a washcloth in the softened, take it out and let it dry. Then use it the same as u would a dryer sheet
It leaves your clothes soft, smelling fresh, and static free. I'm never going back
In the dryer months if you feel you still have static issues, throw in a wadded up ball of Tin foil into your dryer. It helps dissipate the charge given off by the dryer.
