Stretching Fabric Softener

There is nothing more pleasing to me on laundry day than smelling the fragrance coming from my bottle of Gain Fabric Softener. Problem is that I live on a limited income and all the "name brand" fabric softeners can become pricey.


I buy a cheaper version such as Family Dollar brand, Walmart brand or Dollar General brand etc. to decrease the cost. I use a clean container and I mix half of the Gain and half of the cheaper brands together!

Of course the smell is not as strong as using just the Gain alone, but I still get the fragrance for half the price.

Try it!

Fabric softener isnt the only way to give clothes and linen a good smell. Fabric softeners tend to impede absorption on fabric and can ruin the fibers.
Instead try making sachets in the scents you like and place in the drawers or closet where you store your clothing. Your clothes will absorb the odor while you arent wearing them.

I buy generic brand liquid softener and add vinegar to it ,vinegar will eliminate static and it helps get rid of any soap residue and softens my clothes specially towels ,when dry there is no smell of vinegar ,it also keeps my washer smelling clean .
