Anyway, my aunt keeps asking me if I have a frugal fabric softener recipe. I haven't tried one because I have been using the Shaklee brand and I have yet to run out. So I am now almost out and am going to try the following recipe which I got from several different blogs (see here). I use the Downy ball to put my fabric softener in because I never remember to add it to the rinse cycle.
Frugal Fabric Softener
- 2c baking soda
- 2c white vinegar
- 4c water
Mix ingredients and store in a plastic or glass container in your laundry area. Label the container and keep it out of the reach of children. To use: Shake he mixture and add 1/4c to the final rinse in your washing machine. If you have hard water, use 1/3c.
*Now remember that baking soda and vinegar react with each other and they will bubble up and foam, so use a larger container to mix the ingredients and once that has settled, then put them in a smaller container.
Has anyone tried something other than this in their laundry?
