If you’re making your our homemade laundry detergent then you’ll definitely want to find a good diy homemade fabric softener recipe to go with it. I really like homemade fabric softeners. They don’t make your clothes feel the same as store bought fabric softener do when they come out of the dryer. I think that’s a good thing.
Homemade fabric softeners won’t leave your clothes smelling like artificial scents or leave behind that strange chemical softness that dryer sheets do. What homemade fabric softeners will do is make your clothes feel softer than they would if you dried them without some sort of softener and that’s enough for me!
Here are a few simple ways for how to make homemade fabric softeners that work great and get your clothes cuddly and smelling awesome in no time!
Here are my homemade cleaning product post for getting all your laundry clean! Getting chemicals out of my clothes was one of the first big changes I really wanted to make when I started making my own homemade products. I don’t like the idea of wearing clothes covered in chemicals, and dryer fabric softener sheets always seemed gross to me with their sticky texture and sickly sweet smell.
Here are the homemade laundry cleaning products I’ve made so far. I’ll let you know which ones are my favorite as you read.
I remember seeing people use dryer balls when I was a kid. I remember thinking that friend’s parents were a little crazy because they were chucking her kids toy balls into the dryer with the laundry.
I decided to make some diy dryer sheets because I’ve been avoiding dryer sheets for awhile. I never liked their strange sticky texture or their overly sweet smell, and I’ve heard they have potentially harmful or skin irritating ingredients, so I try not to use them. But, from time to time I want my clean clothes and linens to have a nice scent. So I decided to figure out how to make my own. Here’s how to make your own dryer sheets, best of all it only takes a few minutes to make.
Here is a little homemade fabric softener recipe I found that is incredibly easy, and takes no time at all. I can’t stand it when clothes come out of the wash and when they dry they feel all stiff, or crunchy, or rough, or pretty much any way that isn’t soft and pleasant. I also can’t stand the way that most fabric softeners smell, and I get weirded out by their strange sticky texture. I don’t know what they are made out of, but I’m pretty sure I don’t want it on my body. Baking soda is a great option to soften fabric for those who have sensitive skin since it is a natural mineral.
As you probably know, baking soda has about a million uses for cleaning, cooking, and personal hygiene. Surprise, it works great as a diy fabric softener too. Baking soda fabric softener will also help to further fight odor, ensuring that your clothes come out smelling extra clean and fresh.
