Baking Soda and Vinegar Fabric Softener

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.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup baking soda
  • 1/2 cup white vinegar

Directions

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 ;-)

Instructions not very clear. Suggest a step by step re-write.

We have a (salt) water conditioner for hard iron water with a filter. It doesn't filter out all of the iron, so using bleach yellows the light clothes and towels. Instead, I add a cup of white vinegar in the bleach dispenser, which deodorizes and softens the laundry.

I suppose you could also fill the fabric softener dispenser with the vinegar as well. You may smell a hint of vinegar when the load is done, but after drying, your laundry smells fresh and clean, not at all like vinegar. We also have allergies, and this fixes that, too!
