Want an easy, affordable, non-toxic fabric softener: Just use 1/4 to 1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar (brand does not matter) or use the kind you see in the photo to your washing machine to each load you wash. Just put it in the fabric softener section of the washing machine.
I have been using this for many years, and it is the best thing I have ever used. For years, I used the fabric sheets and I had to use unscented because of being allergic to different chemicals and fragrances. I have also used the fabric softener balls and some other things. Nothing beats white vinegar. Your laundry comes out soft and without static. It’s the best discovery and wish I knew about it sooner.
For those of you thinking, “Yuck, vinegar?!” Please know that you do smell it in your washer when it’s washing, but the smell is not there after the rinse cycle. Needless to say, the vinegar scent does not stay in whatever you wash.
