A good friend of mine shared a secret ingredient on how to make a homemade fabric softener. Oh, boy it's very easy and simple to make.
3 cups White Distilled Vinegar
2 cups Hair Conditioner (any kind)
6 cups Hot Water
All you have to do:
Mix ingredients together and pour into a storage container. (I used an empty milk jug for no added cost.) Use about 1/4 cup per load in the rinse cycle or in a Downy Ball.
So if you are looking for a cheap alternative to commerical fabric softener, this is your chance to save! You should try it too!
