Cleaning & Deodorizing Things
Let’s face it, Downy and other liquid fabric softeners are expensive!
Not to mention the fact that they’re made with harsh chemicals, as opposed to using only natural ingredients.
With so many of us doing our best to live greener these days, it makes sense to make your own (safer) household cleaners whenever possible. Homemade liquid fabric softener is no exception.
The fact is that our grandmothers knew all about the benefits of using natural fabric softeners — and there’s no reason that you can’t use some of those exact same natural fabric softeners yourself!
In addition to being more environmentally friendly, you’ll also be saving money. These DIY natural fabric softeners cost just pennies to make (the leading brand of fabric softener costs almost 15 cents per load!) — and they work just as well as the expensive name brand fabric softeners do.
