Do-It-Yourself: Homemade Fabric Softener

I don’t like buying fabric softener because it’s so expensive, so I was excited when I saw this recipe for homemade fabric softener. Here’s what you need:

Homemade Fabric Softener
6 parts hot water
3 parts white vinegar
2 parts hair conditioner (pick up the 15 oz. Suave conditioner for around $0.99)

Mix conditioner and hot water well until the conditioner is dissolved completely. Add the vinegar, and mix well. Store in a large container such as an empty fabric softener container or a large, empty vinegar bottle. Use approximately 2 Tablespoons per load.
