Not only can you save lots by making your own detergent, you can save by making your own fabric softener too! Enjoy!
8 cups white vinegar
1 1/4 cups warm water
1 cup baking soda
Essentials oils of your choice (like lavender, lemon, orange...)
Mix vinegar and water together. Slowly add the baking soda, stirring constantly. Mix this in a large pail, as this will be fizzy! Use a funnel to pour this mixture into a gallon size container like a milk jug or old detergent container. Add a 1/3 teaspoon of your choice of essential oils. You can add more for a stronger fragrance. I tend to like a stronger fragrance. :) Shake before each use and add 1/2 - 1 cup to the fabric softener dispenser, depending on the size of your load.
A safe alternative to soften your clothes - and it's EASY!!!
Remember to add 3-5 drops of eucalyptus or tea tree oil to the dispenser along with the fabric softener to kill bacteria, mold, sick germs, etc. when washing sheets, towels, or any load that might need it!
You can buy great quality essential oils at Beeyoutiful!
