One of the best and easiest DIY home products you can make is fabric softener. Not only will you save money, but you won’t be adding unnecessary chemicals to every load of laundry. And if you or someone in your family has sensitive skin, you’ll be glad about that. Here are some simple ways to make your own fabric softener, so you can quit buying it altogether if you wish.
1. DIY Crystals
This recipe pretty much could not be easier. All you need to is some epsom salt and your favorite kind of essential oil (lavender, lemon, grapefruit, tea tree…). Pour about 4 cups of the salt into a jar and add drops of oil until you like the scent. Start with about 10 drops and go from there. Shake and stir, and add 1/4 cup of the crystals per load.
