DIY Laundry Softener

I have been making my own laundry soap for almost 2 years now and I love it, it works great and the best part is the idea of all the money I'm saving! Interested on how I make my soap? Here you go homemade laundry soap

I got to thinking, its great I'm saving money with my laundry soap, but what about the pricey laundry softener that I use? It was time to hunt down a DIY recipe post on Pinterest and I found this one here. I made it and have used it for near 10 loads already and it works great and now I'm saving even more money and don't we all like that?

The recipe:
6 cups hot water {I used boiled water}
2 cups white vinegar
1 bottle of conditioner {any conditioner, one that smells great & that’s cheap!}
In a bowl mix the hot water and full bottle of conditioner. Stir until completely mixed & dissolved. After that pour in the vinegar and mix it all together. After that pour your laundry softener into the container of your choice. I saved my last softener container and used that. I also treat this softener like a store one and fill that cup up according to the laundry load size.

Do you do anything DIY in your household to save money?

As I was looking at this pictured, I was thinking "hmmm what can I do for laundry dryer sheets....."


  1. I've made my own laundry soap before, but I've never done fabric softener. This is a great idea!

  2. Great idea! I don't use softener, but do use dryer sheets so if you come up with something for that, I'll have to try it! I've checked out your detergent "recipe" and I think I'll give it a try!

  3. I'll give it a try!
