This is my favorite and the one I use the most! It makes a lot and lasts for several months!
Here are some ideas from other Hometalk members. Read them over and choose the right one for you. Wishing you the best.
Hi Peggy: Try these sites:
And, while you're at it:
Fabric Softener #1
* 6 cups vinegar
* 1 cup baking soda
Pour the vinegar into a large bowl. Add your essential oil, if using. I chose to use lavender since that seemed like a nice smelling fabric scent to me. Add your baking soda. When fizz has settled, pour into storage container of choice. Use up to 1 cup (depending on load size) per load. I poured mine right into the regular fabric softener location.
Fabric Softener #2
* 5 cups hot water
* 3 cups vinegar
* 1 cup hair conditioner
Mix hot water and conditioner together in medium bowl. (The hot water helps smooth any clumps from the conditioner). Mix in vinegar and pour in container of choice. Use the same amount as you would a store bought softener and add to the regular softener spot in your washer or during the rinse cycle. Note: I used a regular cheapo conditioner from the dollar store. The higher quality conditioners won’t make any noticeable differences, so don’t waste your money!

I use Young Living's Thieves laundry soap and dilute it to make it last longer
Hi Peggy, hope this helps you, you can add some drops of essential oil to this for scenting it
Mix together 2 parts Borax, 2 parts washing soda, and 1 part grated Fels-Naptha soap to create your own laundry detergent. You can make as much or as little as you'd like; just adjust the proportions as appropriate. Use up to three level tablespoons per wash load
