Marji here again with another recipe to save you money on your laundry. I don’t go through fabric softener as quickly as I do laundry soap, but I figured there had to be a recipe to make my own for less than what I pay at the store for it. I found one on pinterest and it is really easy to make and uses things you probably have on hand!
Here is what you need:
3 cups white vinegar
6 cups hot water
a container to mix it in
Make sure you stir it, don’t shake it. It takes a few minutes of stirring until it is all mixed together. I just mixed it until there were no more conditioner clumps and it was a smooth consistency.
I used my funnel to pour it into my old fabric softener dispenser.
It is ready to go. I added about 1/4 cup to my fabric softener dispenser in my HE washer. I like how it works and it smells really good.
Here is the cost break down:
hair conditioner $1.50
Gallon of vinegar $2.00 (I only used 3 cups of it and have more for other cleaning projects)
It makes about 11 cups and if you use 1/4 cup/load then it is just 8 cents a load.
