Homemade Fabric Softener Recipes

My Favorite Fabric Softener Recipe:

·        3 cups White Distilled Vinegar

·        2 cups Hair Conditioner (this works out to about the size of a full bottle of Suave)

·        6 cups Hot Water

Directions: Mix ingredients together and pour into a storage container. Use about 1/4 cup per load in the rinse cycle or in a Downy Ball.


Fabric Softener

2 cups cold water
1 cup baking soda
1 cup vinegar, either kind will do.

1. Place baking soda in LARGE bowl and pour vinegar over it; while it’s bubbling, pour cold water in and mix.
2. Store in sealed container and shake before using to combine all ingredients.
3. Add 1/4 cup of mixture during the last rinse cycle (Does not work well with a Downy ball.) 

Fabric Softener:

·        1 Gallon White Distilled Vinegar

·        Optional: 25 -30 drops of Essential Oil for fragrance

Directions: Fill a Downy Ball as you regularly would or add 1/4 cup to the rinse cycle. If you like your clothes to have a lingering fragrance like traditional fabric softener, add essential oil to the gallon of vinegar. Be sure to mark your jug so you don’t accidentally grab it for another purpose.
