Homemade Fabric Softener – Self Sufficient Tip

I LOVE this!  My clothes are coming out so much softer & fresh-smelling for a fraction of the price of store-bought!

Homemade Fabric Softener Recipe

3 cups warm water
1-1/2 cups white vinegar
1 cup natural/homemade conditioner (any form of hair conditioner will work, try to purchase one with all natural ingredients)

A few drops of your preferred essential oil

Pour all ingredients, except essential oils, into an appropriate container and stir the mixture thoroughly until fully combined. Do NOT shake the mixture. Add the essential oils if desired and stir again to your liking.

To use, simply add approx. 2 oz to the rinse cycle of your wash.

And voila!  There you go!
This goes perfectly with my homemade laundry soap post — which already makes my clothes come out much softer.
