If you’re battling static cling or suffering through crunchy, line-dried clothing, you’ll definitely want to check out this cheap and easy homemade laundry softener.
After all, fabric softener can cost a lot of money and add a lot of chemicals you may not want.
So how do you make your own homemade laundry softener?
Simple! Just add 1/4 cup or so of white vinegar to the rinse cycle when you’re washing clothes. If you have an HE washer, just add it to the same spot you would normally add fabric softener.
The white vinegar will soften your fabric and it won’t leave any smell behind. (In case you’re worried about smelling like pickles!)
If you just have to have some scent to your laundry, you can save money with DIY dryer sheets. These aren’t as environmentally friendly as just using plain white vinegar in the rinse cycle, but it is more budget and planet-friendly then using fabric softener straight out of the bottle.
