Homemade Fabric Softner

Homemade liquid fabric softener is SUPER easy to make and you can customize it to smell however you want it to! It has the most unexpected ingredient in it: hair conditioner! I have been using this for about 2 years now and I will never go back to the expensive liquid fabric softener that is full of chemicals that are harsh on your clothes and washing machine.

You can make this organic if you want to use organic-based hair conditioner. Personally, I use the cheapest conditioner I can find (usually less than $1.00 with a coupon). This liquid fabric softener usually comes out to about .50 cents per batch, which does around 30 loads of laundry! That is quite a savings! Here's the recipe:

Tip: if you find you still have static cling, add more vinegar to your recipe.

  1. I'm amazed how many people use fabric softener in their wash...I never have. Maybe cause my mom never did. But I do use a bounce sheet once in a while and usually only in the winter. But living here on the West Coast, nothing usually is to static...and it saved me money.

    But I will check out the link, just "cause" you posted it LOL....I am sure enjoying your blog...glad you have decided to blog.

    Have a wonderful day.
