Homemade Fabric Softener

Homemade Fabric Softener Recipe

I make all of my own cleaning products. Homemade Fabric Softener, Laundry SoapDish Washing Tablets and even my own Febreze.

They save me TONS of money, and I know exactly what is in them, so I don’t have to worry about harsh chemicals on things my kids use. And with a son who has Eczema, that is important to me.

Making your own Homemade Fabric Softener is super easy, you will wonder why you never did it before.


  • 6 Cups Water 
  • 2 Cups of your favorite scented hair conditioner
  • 3 Cups of White Vinegar
  • Essential Oil of your choice (Optional)


  1. Mix the water, hair conditioner and white vinegar together well.
  2. Add your essential oil a few drops at a time until you reach a scent level you enjoy.
  3. Store in a air tight container. I use a mason jar. I use mason jars for everything…lol
  4. Use 1/4 cup per load.

Told ya, Homemade Fabric Softener is super simple, and super cheap!

* Note, when you buy your hair conditioner, be sure to get a 16oz bottle so you have enough. If you don’t have a 16oz bottle, just take about a 1/4 cup  of vinegar and water off the recipe.

  1. Thank you for sharing this. I am definitely going to try this. I will try anything to save money because buying fabric softener at the store gets to be expensive. Thanks again.

    I am so going to make this and use it for my next laundry! So much more easy than other recipes I’ve seen. Now the question is: which oil? Lavender? Tea Tree? Eucalyptus? Lemon?….

  3. I am totally digging an orange essential oil right now. Maybe I shall try that!

  4. Thanks for the post. I will be making this. I already make my own laundry detergent.
