    Does it leave your cloths smelling like vinegar and is there something else you can use if you don’t have the oils and what oils do y’all recommend for a good fresh linen clean smell?

    What are the measurements of vinegar, oil, and essential oil? What type of oil? Will it leave oily spot on my clothes?

    I get Apple scent hair conditioner at Dollar Tree, mix with half water & pour half a cup in washer to soften water & smells good. Then I use an old washcloth dampened with this mix to toss in dryer. Works for me.
