Home Made Fabric Softener
Written By: Michelle, The Green-Mother
I have finally run out of “commercial store bought” fabric softener. This means I can start making and using my own home made formula. After doing some research and experimenting with different scents and products, I have finally found a simple recipe that I love.
It saves me money and I am avoiding the dangerous toxins that can be found in store bought commercial products.
Ingredients For My Home Made Fabric Softener
– Six cups of water.
– Three cups of white vinegar.
– 2 Cups of hair conditioner. I use the hair conditioner that I purchase at the health food store. I purchase my conditioner in bulk and use my own recycled containers. This also cuts down on costs.
– First, mix water, vinegar, and the hair conditioner. I store mine in a recycled fabric softener container.
It is important that I do not shake the ingredients. Doing this will cause the product to foam. I use the same amount that I normally would when using the commercial brands. Instead of using it as a fabric softener, I can also use it as a fabric softener sheet. To do this, I simply spray desired amount on a face cloth and add it to the dryer.
