Here's a simple recipe for keeping your fabrics soft and fluffy. It's a lot gentler on your clothes, than commercial fabric softeners and much easier on your wallet as well.
Fill washing machine with water. Add baking soda and then the clothes. During the final rinse cycle, add the vinegar into your fabric softener dispenser if your washing machine has one (or add directly during the rinse cycle.)

Do you use detergent in your wash along with the baking soda?

I use a Downey fabric softener ball to dispense the vinegar....
I use this exact combination, but not measured, to wash dishes that the dogs have licked, before people use them again. It cuts through the slippery slobber ;-)
