I heard from a bunch of you that you were going to try the hair conditioner softener recipe I used. I wasn't happy with the smell (surprise, surprise) It smelled good when I poured it in, but when the clothes came out of the dryer, I couldn't smell it on them. Maybe it was the brand of hair conditioner? If you have had luck finding a good conditioner brand, please post your comments under the blog so we all can know! In the meantime, I had a friend who studies aromatherapy recommend this recipe to me. I bought some essential oils at Whole Foods and tomorrow I will set up my mad scientist laboratory. Here is the recipe:
I have a recipe for homemade fabric softener that uses essential oils for scent. In a recycled gallon sized vinegar Jug add 2 cups baking soda and 2 cups distilled white vinegar. When mixture finishes foaming add 4 cups of hot water and essential oils to desired strength. I use 20 drops each of lavender and lemon. Shake before each use and add about 1 cup for large loads in the rinse cycle. Essential oils can be found at health food stores locally and of course on the Internet. They are a bit expensive but last a very long time. Hope this was helpful to you.
