I use an old vinegar bottle.. filling it about half way with water.
In a small pan I heat about 2 cups of water.. adding about 3/4 of a cup of water
softener.. 3/4 cup of borax.. and 3/4 cup of washing soda.
stir until dissolved..
add too the bottle of water.. then pour in one cup of vinegar.. and about (((1/2
or less of baby shampoo ..)))
shake a bit to mix..

Yea it was 1/2 CUP or less of shampoo.. I use less most the time.,
and no.. if you have soft water you probalby don't need extra softener..
like I said .. it's not rocket science.. you can play with it to suit your
needs.. the clothes are so soft too.. with or w/o the w-softener
