Another quick and simple post!
We ran out of softener recently and I figured, if I make my own detergent, why not make softener? After consulting the great Google, I found this article. As with the detergent, there are many variations…y’know, experiment.
6 cups water
3 cups white vinegar
2 cups hair conditioner
- Pour all of the ingredients into a 1 gallon jug. Stir or slosh around to mix. Shaking will create bubbles.
- Use as you would store bought softener. If you prefer dryer sheets, spray a washcloth with the softener and pop it in the dryer.
I’m not sure how it happened, but we have a surplus of conditioner, so this was an excellent find for me. You can use any conditioner you like the scent of, and I would guess the cheaper, simpler brands would work better. You don’t need stuff like panthenol (it coats) or straightening ingredients. If you clip coupons, you can get Suave super cheap if you use one during a sale. Even if you don’t it’s still cheap.
What should I write about next week? Do you guys like cleaning tips and recipes? Or move on to another subject? I’ve amassed a lot of information, but of course, I would like to write about stuff people are interested in. Leave a comment!
