DIY 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) Bucket/Pail/Pot

(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!
