DIY Fabric Softener with Conditioner!

DIY Fabric Softener  Conditioner

Save BIG on laundry day by whipping up a bottle of this DIY fabric softener with conditioner, vinegar and water!

This DIY fabric softener is a simple, cost-effective solution that really works.    All you need for this recipe is white vinegar, hot water, and a conditioner in a scent you like.  Conditioner goes on sale fairly often, and couponing can even make it FREE.  What a great way to turn some of your haircare stockpile into laundry care!

 

I just finished a few loads of laundry using this – and when I first took the clothes out of the washer I could smell a faint vinegar odor.  I was worried.  Then I realized it was just the tub of the washing machine – the clothes went into the dryer and came out without the slightest hint of vinegar. (Whew!  I definitely breathed a sigh of relief that my hubby’s work clothes weren’t reeking!)

What you need:

  • 2 Cups Conditioner
  • 3 Cups White Vinegar
  • 6 Cups HOT Water

Directions:

  1. Mix the hot water, conditioner and vinegar together in a large container.  (I used a big tea pitcher)
  2. Stir the mixture together until the conditioner lumps have dissolved. (Stir rather than shake, otherwise it will foam up)
  3. Store in a large jug or empty fabric softener container (I used a Sunny D jug!)

Here’s a printable version of this DIY Fabric Softener with conditioner:

A final thought…. I think that next time I may try this with a more strongly scented conditioner – because there just wasn’t enough snuggly smell for me at the end.  Or drop a few drops of essential oil into the mixture.  Have you found a good DIY laundry care solution?  We’d love to hear about what works for you!
