Homemade Liquid Fabric Softener

Hey Loves!
Rissa here with another great tip!
So now that you all have made your very own Powder Laundry Detergent  you guys could use a recipe for homemade Fabric Softener!

Here's what you'll need: 
  • 1-2 Qts. Distilled White Vinegar
  • 1 tsp. Vegetable Glycerin
  • 1 tsp. Essential Oil of your choice (lavender, lemongrass, orange)
  • 1 Empty bottle (I used an empty fabric softener bottle)
Distilled White Vinegar

Vegetable Glycerin (Available here )

Lavender E.O. (Available here)

An empty bottle

Here's what to do: 

  1. Combine all the ingredients in the bottle.
  2. Shake the bottle to mix well.
Adding the Glycerin

Shake, shake, shake...shake, shake, shake...shake your bottle!

How to use:

We have been using this homemade fabric softener for a few months now and I am pleased with how it works. Now if you like the way that store bought softeners make your clothes smell then this may not be for you. I particularly don't care for the fragrance of store bought softeners so it works for me.

Here are some interesting facts about the Homemade Fabric Softener:
-The vinegar helps to remove residue from store bought detergents/fabric softener
-Makes clothes soft and wrinkle free
-Safe for sensitive skin and babies
