I ran out of fabric softener today. So instead of running to the store I decided to take a leap of faith and make my own! I found many different recipes for fabric softener online and I decided to tweak a few and make my own.
6 cups boiling water
2 cups hair conditioner
3 cups distilled white vinegar
1. Boil 6 cups of water. Turn off heat. (you can use cold water but I think it helps break down the hair conditioner)
2. Add 2 cups of hair conditioner.
3. Add 3 cup of vinegar.
5. Pour into container of choice. (I used an old laundry detergent bottle with the pour spout.)
It smells awesome! I was afraid it would smell like vinegar but if you pick a good strong smelling conditioner the smell is great:) I also learned that vinegar is great for your clothing!
I use almost an ounce per large load.
