If you love that just-cleaned smell of fresh laundry but want to save some money when it comes to laundry care supplies, then this tutorial on DIY Fabric Softeners is a happy compromise. With several variations included in this tutorial, you're sure to find a homemade fabric softener that you and your family will love. These fabric softeners won't take long to prepare, and many use materials that you likely already have on hand at home. After you have completed making the fabric softeners, simply store the cleaning supply in a resealable container that's placed out of the reach of children. Whether you want to save some money on cleaning supplies or simply want to cut down on your use of fabric softeners, you can't go wrong with this budget-friendly idea!

I have been using baking soda in between my rinses when I wash my hair and it really balances the pH of my scalp especially when I don't have a pH balanced shampoo. I bet if it works for my hair then it could also work for my clothes. I normally use a eucalyptus and tea tree oil mix so I'll try that too in the vinegar fabric softener.
