Fabric Softener Solutions

Looking for a natural alternative to commercial fabric softeners? Look no further as we provide you with some simple, cheap yet effective solutions.


Solution 1: White Vinegar

One of the easiest and most effective ways to make your own fabric softener is to simply use white vinegar. Just fill the fabric softener compartment with white vinegar and run your washing machine as usual. 


Solution 2: Citric Acid

Another great option for a natural rinse aid is citric acid. It's often used in cleaning products as a powerful and effective way to dissolve hard water stains and mineral build up. But did you know that it can also be used to soften fabrics in the wash? 


How to use

Simply add 1 teaspoon of citric acid to the fabric softener compartment and it will dilute with the rinse water. You can also add direct to the rinse cycle.


Add a sweet touch

Adding essential oils to your fabric softener is completely optional, but it's a great way to add a pleasant scent to your laundry. Some of the best essential oils for laundry include lavender, lemon, peppermint, and tea tree oil. We recommend adding 5-10 drops per load. 


Remember, you can grab all the ingredients you need to make this recipe right here at Under Your Sink, we also have this available pre-mixed.
