Fabric Softener 1 quart glass bottle of white vinegar, add 25 drops of Lavender essential oil + 1 tsp rubbing alcohol (for emulsion). You now have a quart of naturally softening fabric softener! Good for your skin, good for your appliance and good for the planet! Pour 1/2 cup into the rinse cycle or into a fabric softener receptacle and start the wash cycle.
DIY "Purex Crystals": Only 2 ingredients! Epsom salt and fragrance! I used 2 Tbs. of this wonderful stuff, and my clothes smell nice, and they're soft. Update: I doubled the drops to 40 each (Barely moved the level) and this is even better! I stuck with the Lavender-Lime. Heavenly!
