This is a very simple and very inexpensive recipe for home made fabric softener
- 6 cups HOT water
- 3 cups white vinegar
- 2 cups of your favorite conditioner
You simply mix all the ingredients together and stir vigorously with a wire whisk until all the conditioner is dissolved. Once it is dissolved you pour it into a container (the container shown is NOT big enough).
For "dryer sheets" I place 2 sponges in a rectangle shaped bowl as shown below.
Then I pour some of the fabric softener over the top of the sponges as shown below.
I put the lid on and let them set while the clothes wash. Then I pull out one or both sponges depending on how strong I want the clothes to smell and I throw them in the dryer. I do NOT wring them out first. Just repeat every time you want to use them. I only use these on occasion as it takes up a lot of my softener. I put some links below on other ideas for homemade dryer sheets. Hope you find something you like. Just as an added note, I do have an HE washer.
