    Default myo fabric softner

    Hi all

    Have you tried making your own fabric softener? I do all the time. The recipe is really simple 2 cups baking soda, 2 cups white vinegar, and 4 cups water. Mix well. Be careful baking soda and vinegar will produce a foaming gas. I do this and add about 1 cup of cheap fabric softener to it in the winter for static cling.

    I made up some of the soda, vinegar, whatever fabric softener, but did not
    like it very well. I have found this works for me. I had saved empty plastic
    bottle of fabric softener, as we recycle. I had two empty bottle and bought
    one new one. I put a third of the fabric softener into the two empty bottles,
    then filled each bottle with vinegar. I use a capful in my dispenser and do
    not dilute it. My clothes are very soft, and still have the aroma of the fabric
    softener. I think I might get another bottle and then use one-fourth of a
    bottle in each one. The last fabric softener I bought two was a cheap bottle
    from Aldis. Was less then $2.00 for the bottle. I often just use plain vinegar
    in loads of bath towels. I have been using their dry detergent too. And, I
    think my clothes are as clean as ever. I think the cost is less than three
    cents per load. I tired some of the home made dry, but I think I like this just
    as well. I use the dry, as I have arthritis in my hands and sometimes opening
    the bottles is hard for me to do. I keep the lids on my fabric softener on
    kind of loose.
