Green Recipes ~ Homemade Fabric Softner

fabric-softener-496x480

6 Cups Water

2 Cups Hair Conditioner (You can use any kind. I prefer using a conditioner that is all natural. I usually purchase mine at Sprouts or Central Market.)

3 Cups White Vinegar

Essential Oils (optional)

 

When you buy the conditioner at the store, keep in mind you’ll be needing 16oz. Simply stir the ingredients together then pour them in jars or another storage container. I added Lavender essential oil (about 20 drops) to the fabric softener which gives it a much stronger scent especially since you’re likely using a scented hair conditioner too.

 

You can use this in your fabric softener dispenser or soak a washcloth (and then wring it out well) in it and throw the washcloth in your dryer with your other clothing.
