Pinterest Project 3: Liquid Fabric Softener

I’ve shown you how I’m trying to be more careful with what I spend my money on.  Last week I made home made laundry detergent and body wash.  Today, I’ll show you how easy it is to make your own fabric softener!  This recipe can also be used if you use dryer sheets.  It’s simple to convert this liquid fabric softener into a dryer sheet one!

Ingredients:

2 c. hair conditioner

3c. white vinegar

6 c. warm water

You’ll also need:

Container for the fabric softener

Directions:

1.  Mix warm water, vinegar, and conditioner together.  I used a whisk.  Don’t shake it, it will cause it to foam up.   You can microwave (for only 30 seconds or so with the cap off or in a microwave safe bowl) the conditioner to get it into a more liquid state.  It makes it easier to dissolve into the water and vinegar.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2.  Pour (a funnel is helpful) into your container!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

That’s it!  Just use the same amount of the regular stuff  during your rinse cycle that you normally would.  (about 1/4 cup)

If you don’t have an HE washer or a compartment to add the liquid fabric softener during the rinse cycle, don’t worry!  You can also make your own “dryer sheets” as well.  Just take regular sponges, cut in half, and soak them in the liquid fabric softener.  You can either take them out and dry them, then throw in your dryer, or put them in wet.  As long as you start your dryer after putting in the wet sponges, they won’t spot your clothing!  If you have a lot of clean dish rags/wash cloths you can spare, you can use a spritz bottle and spray a rag before you put it in the dryer!

*Another tip.  If you’re still having problems with static cling, add a ball of aluminum foil to your dryer.  :)
