Since I have ventured into the “All Natural World”, I have not been fully content with the smell of all my homemade products.

I have used many ingredients/recipes suggested from One  Good Thing including this fabric softener, which I love!!

 

I have used homemade dryer sheets, consisting of a cloth pot holder with 10 drops of essential oil(s), but with little success. While I love the smells of various essential oils, you cannot smell them on your clothes once dried, so it really seems like a waste of oil.

 

Because laundry is one of my least favorite things to do I would like to have as few steps as possible AND expect a good return for my efforts.

 

This recipe is great!! This is the first recipe I’ve tried that left my clothes without any static cling too!!

Here is the recipe!

 

Ingredients:

  • 6 cups water
  • 3 cups distilled white vinegar
  • 2 cups hair conditioner (I chose to go with an all natural, paraben-free conditioner sold at Sprouts for $7.99 for Fl Oz., see picture below)

 

Directions:

1. Mix water, vinegar, and hair conditioner into a mixing container; stir. Do not shake it; it will cause foaming.

2. Once done stirring, pour into an empty 1 gallon container (I used an empty 1 gallon water bottle).

3. Enjoy your chemical-free fabric softener that leaves a good smelling aroma on your clothes with no static cling.

 

How to Use:

I shake the container one quick time to make sure the ingredients are mixed well.

  • Pour 1/4 cup into the washer during the rinse cycle.

or

  • Purchase a fabric softener “downy” ball to release during the rinse cycle. ( “downy” ball way is my favorite!)

or

  • Add to fabric softener compartment of your washer.
