Vinegar + Essential Oils
Even though it really does rinse away, not everyone enjoys the scent of vinegar in the wash. So if you want to go a step further, you can make your own liquid softener that also smells good by adding essential oils to the vinegar. We like to add 10 drops of lavender and 10 drops of lemon to a bottle of vinegar. Label it “fabric softener” and put it on your laundry shelf!
