Are you looking for a Homemade Liquid Fabric Softener recipe? Look no further! This is another guest post from my friend Leslie, the artist. When she is not making beautiful art, you can find her in the kitchen experimenting with frugally-inspired DIY recipes!
DIY Healthy & Inexpensive Fabric Softener
Continue to explore your goddessess-cleaning self with this simple recipe. This is another one that you can make into a project with your little one. The vinegar is not only cheap and non-toxic, it’s antimicrobial, softens fabric and helps reduce static. The baking soda is another inexpensive and natural softener, as well as a cleaner and deodorizer. Essential oils – an optional ingredient here – are also antimicrobial, but really, the importance here is that all goddesses need an ‘aromatherapy moment’ to get through such earthly tasks.
Shake before each use:
- 6 cups white vinegar
- 1 cup baking soda
- 10 drops essential oil (lemon, lavender, sweet orange, eucalyptus, or peppermint) This is optional, but oh so lovely.
Good to know: You will need about a 1/4 cup for HE washers, and about 1/2 cup for regular washers. Experiment with the aromas that most appeal to you! The final clothes won’t keep the aroma, but mixing and using is a pleasure, and pleasure is what cleaning goddesses discover.
