Making homemade fabric softener is easy and will save you money on laundry supplies. It is also environmentally friendly, and non-allergenic.
I have noticed that a lot of people I know are sensitive to commercial
fabric softeners, so I decided to find a recipe to make my own fabric
softener so that I could still have soft, fresh-smelling laundry without
the expense and chemical scent that goes along with using the
commercial products. I found this one - it uses readily available,
inexpensive ingredients; is easy to make; and leaves the laundry soft
An added bonus of this fabric softener is that you can use it to soften and freshen your towels - if you try this with commercial fabric softeners, you will find that your towels are not as absorbent any more. This is because the commercial products contain silicone which coats the fabrics so that they feel softer without actually being softer.
