Simple and Natural Fabric Softener Recipe
With just one ingredient, vinegar, this "recipe" couldn't be easier...
In the kitchen, I love salads and recipes that include vinegar, especially natural infused vinegars. On its own, however, the harsh fragrance of vinegar is definitely not an aroma that I deliberately seek out. Despite its abrasive smell, vinegar is naturally anti-bacterial and anti-viral. It is affordable and does soften clothes well when added to the rinse cycle. Vinegar also helps to eliminate soap residue build-up on clothing.
In place of commercial fabric softener, add 1/2 cup of vinegar to laundry during the rinse cycle.
Avoid balsamic and other dark vinegars as they may stain clothes.
