Here is a CHEAP and EASY alternitive to that pricy liquid fabric softner. This is a very simple solution that is certianly more natural than all the chemicals you are putting in your clothes with the store bought fabric softner and works even better! I got the hair conditioner on sale (really cheap brand) for .89cents, and of course vinegar is about $2.00 for the 1/2 gallon size so this is MUCH cheaper and "greener"!
things you'll need:
3 C vinegar
2 C hair conditioner (any kind)
6 C water
in a seal able container (if you have a couple old liquid fabric softener containers, those work well), combine 2 cups hair conditioner (I use a regular sized bottle- a little less than 2 cups), 3 cups vinegar, and 6 cups water
mix all ingredients together
store in air tight container.
use same amount you would use with regular liquid fabric soften
