HOMEMADE FABRIC SOFTENER (my version)
3 cups white vinegar
2 cups Suave OR other CHEAP hair conditioner (I buy a giant bottle from sally beauty supply)
I add 2 tbps of my fave fragrance oil (this is purely optional and I like things to smell REALLY good. My fave is cedar wood. Smells clean)
6 cups HOT water
HOW TO DO IT:
Mix conditioner & hot water well, until conditioner is dissolved completely.
Add the vinegar, and mix well.
Store in a large container: empty fabric softener container, empty large vinegar bottle, empty 1 gallon water or juice bottle
Put about 2 tbsp. in the fabric softener holder in your washer… then wash as usual. (Some people use downy laundry balls. I don’t have one and I have a slot for fabric softener in my washer, so that’s what I use. I also have an HE washer and this is fine for it.
NOTE: it’s best not to shake the bottle of softener before using it as it makes it foamy. I forget and to it anyway sometimes… and it IS foamy lol
