This is my new laundry softener next to my homemade laundry detergent.
Usually I just use vinegar and find that it works great for softening and leaves no scent whatsoever. However, I was enticed by a pin I found a recipe for scented homemade laundry softener. I couldn't pass it up.
1cup hot water
1/2 cup scented laundry crystals
1cup baking soda
3 cups vinegar
(The baking soda and vinegar some of the huge warning., but I thought I would go for it anyhow)
Mix and laundry crystals and set aside.
In a large bowl dump 1 cup baking soda. SLOWLY add vinegar. Stir till dissolved. Add dissolved scented crystals. Use a funnel to pour into jug.
I would love to have more pictures of this process but when I mixed the vinegar and baking soda I was overzealous and had a gigantic mess all over my counter.
I've read that once the two components are mixed together the value of them it's kind of canceled out so I think if I was to make this again I would just dissolve the laundry crystals in the vinegar and just leave it at that.
I'll give an update after my next load of laundry and let you know what I think.
Do you have a favorite homemade recipe for any home products?
