Create Your Own Natural Fabric Softener for Laundry

In the quest for softer fabrics and pleasantly scented clothes, commercial laundry softeners are a common household item. However, these products often contain chemicals that can lead to skin irritations or respiratory allergies like rhinitis. Considering how long our clothes are in contact with our skin, it’s important to consider healthier alternatives.
Here’s a guide to making your own natural laundry softener, using safe and readily available ingredients. This homemade solution is not only effective but also free from harmful chemicals.
Ingredients for Natural Laundry Softener:
White vinegar
Sea salt
Baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)
Essential oil of your choice (optional)

Dissolve 200 grams of baking soda in half a liter of hot water.

Gradually add 250 ml of white vinegar to the baking soda solution. Don’t worry about the vinegar’s smell; it surprisingly leaves laundry smelling fresh and clean.

For a touch of fragrance, add 5-10 drops of your favorite essential oil. This step is optional but can enhance the sensory experience of your laundry.

Vinegar, while seemingly an unconventional choice, actually works wonders in giving your laundry a refreshing scent that’s quite different from its original smell. The addition of essential oils allows you to personalize the fragrance according to your preference.
