Homemade Fabric Softener – Quick Easy And Inexpensive


While the price of fabric softener continues to climb, I found a way to keep it lower and achieve a sense of accomplishment at the same time. It uses my favorite household cleaner, white distilled vinegar.

No matter what type of vinegar you buy, there’s always 100 uses for it besides just in salad dressing. I use it to clean tubs and sinks, sprinkling a little baking soda over it after a few minutes for rough spots to create extra abrasion when I scrub. I also love to watch it sizzle and foam, which is pretty cheap entertainment, even if it is a sad commentary on my choices in that area.

You’ll Need:

  • 2 cups hair conditioner, pick a scent you like
  • 3 cups distilled white vinegar
  • 6 cups hot water
  • a container to mix it in
