Homemade Fabric Softener (My clothes are SO soft - softer than with store-bought, and smell fresh and clean. The scent of the conditioner is definitely there. This recipe makes a lot of softener, so I only made half.)
DIY fabric softener - without conditioner Mix 1 cup baking soda with 2 cups hot water. Stir until the powder is well mixed (it will not fully dissolve). Add 1 cup white vinegar. The soda and the vinegar are going to react and bubble all around. Stir until well combined. Add ¼ cup to your rinse cycle.
