HOMEMADE FABRIC SOFTENER
(DiY) $.01 LOAD!
If there is one thing I hate buying, it's softener! I will admit,
because the lack of great sales I find on it, I rarely use it! I love to
use it though, so I had to come up with a plan B! Homemade Fabric softener!
I was excited when I found a recipe for homemade liquid fabric softener,
especially when I read the main ingredient: hair conditioner!
When you think about it, fabric softener does the same for clothes
as hair conditioner does for our hair! How many of you can go to your stockpile right now and find at least a dozen bottles of hair conditioner?
I know I can!
So let's give it a second use!
Ready to do this? (Be sure to Pin this on Pintrest if you like this
DIY household item!)
Items you will need:
(2) cups of hair conditioner
(3) cups of distilled white vinegar
(6) cups of boiling water
(1) Mixing utensil
(1) Empty bottle
(I used an old clean bleach container)
First of all, you will notice in my picture I only have a 12oz bottle of
conditioner! Well, I am terrible at math! Not to worry, I had extra bottles
so I grabbed a 1/2 cup out of another bottle!
Many of the recipes you will see out thee say cold water is fine, I on
the other hand prefer to have the water hot because it helps break down
the conditioner, meaning less stirring for me!
STEP 1. pour the 6 cups of boiling in water into the pail
STEP 2. Add the conditioner
STEP 3. Add the vinegar
STEP 4. Start stirring
After you get done stirring, you will notice some
clumps left. No worries, pour into your sealable
container and shake away! No more clumps!
This whole process took me about 4 minutes! My favorite part . . . ( get
to make the scent myself, not pick one off the shelf, and with the million
different scents of conditioner out there, a million different scents
to be had!
I did go out an buy the vinegar for $1.82 at Walmart, used a third of
the bottle ($.60) and conditioner I had on hand ($.48)
For a grand total of $1.08! This is a 96 oz bottle that I filled, and according
to Snuggle, 96 oz = 96 loads! This makes it $.01 per load!
I have washed my laundry with my homemade fabric softener and I am
loving the red raspberries and Brazilian silk scent! Don't forget to pin this!
