Make Your Own Fabric Softener Without the Use of Dangerous Chemicals

A product that is often essential when it comes to doing laundry is fabric softener. However, the usual store-bought fabric softeners tend to be unhealthy and can damage clothes if not used properly. In light of this, we are going to examine how to create a homemade fabric softener that is free of chemicals and easy on fabrics, and you can still enjoy a wonderful scent and soft texture after your next load of laundry. 

3 ingredients for a natural fabric softener

It can be a pleasure to go through all the different options that are available at the supermarket when it comes to fabric softeners. It is important to remember, though, that the chemicals present in these products can have some negative consequences. One example is the itchy irritation of the skin. Over time, this is not just an annoyance but can also lead to allergic reactions. So in order to avoid this, we are going to make a fabric softener from all-natural products.

To get started, we are going to need the following:

  • 250ml of white wine vinegar
  • 200 grams of baking soda
  • Half a liter of water
  • Essential oil

Once we have everything, we can get started by mixing all the ingredients. All we have to do is place our natural products in a large bowl and stir until we have an even solution. Now we can add the solution to the next load of laundry.

You may think that vinegar may not be the best thing to add to a product that is intended to produce a fresh scent. However, the strange odor that the vinegar produces will be neutralized in the process. Also, the essential oil will end up being the fabric softener’s defining characteristic. So remember that you can get creative when it comes to the fragrance you can create.
