How to Make Your Own Fabric Softener

Posted by on Aug 6, 2019 | No Comments

Nowadays many conventional fabric softener’s contain toxic chemicals that tend to coat the fabric on your clothing making them harder to clean. And just like every other cleaning product on the market, once you get hooked on a scent it’s hard to give it up.

But the good news is that you don’t have to give up your favorite scent. You can make your own fabric softener right in the comfort of your own home and without harsh toxic chemicals.

Why should I make my own fabric softener?

Not only do some fabric softeners coat the fabric of your clothing making them harder to clean, but they also coat your fabric just enough to have contact with your skin and cause irritation. This means that all those chemicals have the ability to transfer from your clothes to your bedding, furniture, etc. The transfer of these harsh chemicals can cause allergens and respiratory problems.

Making your own fabric softener easier on your skin, better for the environment, and is simple and inexpensive to make.
