I started thinking...... I need some fabric softener. Being the DIY crazy lady I've turned into lately, I decided to google different recipes to make my own.
I found several different recipes but here's what I put together:
3 cups warm water
1 1/2 cups white vinegar
1 cup conditioner
1 Storage Container (I used a leftover spring water bottle.. Simply rubbed peanut butter over the sticky label, let it sit for about 15 minutes and scrubbed with a wet sponge to remove the glue)
The water is better warm so it helps dissolve the conditioner.
*You simply add all ingredients into a bowl and stir*
I had to use a slightly larger bowl than the original one in the first picture :) Looks like I under-estimated how much I was making.
Pour it into whatever container you wish you store your fabric softener into...
Voila.. Fabric Softener!! It looks great, smells great... has a great consistency. Today, I'm doing several loads of laundry. I'll update after I do a few loads and tell you what I think! The process was simple enough. Can it really be that easy to make good fabric softener? I'll let you know in a little bit..
Btw: If you want to make a little more, just double all ingredients. Even for the mathmatically challenged, this one should be pretty easy to figure out :)
UPDATE: I've finished about 4 loads of laundry since I made the fabric softener. It works great as far as keeping the clothes soft and static free. It has a nice, slight scent. For those of you who don't like a strong scent, this would be perfect! For me, I like a little stronger scent. I may try to add a little scent into the next batch I make. Maybe some lavender oil.
