We all love when our clothes smell nice, but did you know that producers add harmful fragrances to fabric softeners? These are especially dangerous for children.

Experts explain that commercial softeners cause allergies, and taking into consideration their high content of chemicals, they are not that health-friendly. “If you cannot put it in your mouth, do not put it on your skin either” is an old saying, and you may want to think about it next time you decide to buy a softener. Fabric softeners enter the body through the skin and cause serious damages.

Therefore, avoid using chemical-loaded fabric softeners when washing your clothes, especially your children’s clothes.

Phthalates are added to obtain scent, and studies have shown that they harm the hormone balance in animals. Therefore, by using fabric softeners, you are not only harming your health, but also the environment.

Hopefully, you are now convinced that you should trust nature and make an all-natural softener. You need some super-cheap and easily-available ingredients like baking soda, water, essential oil, and apple cider vinegar.

How To Make Your Own Natural Fabric Softener

Ingredients:

  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cup hot water
  • 3 1/3 cups apple cider vinegar
  • 20 drops essential oil

Preparation:

You need a big plastic container (3-5l), because of the bubble reaction. Combine water, baking soda, and apple cider vinegar together. The ingredients will cause a chemical reaction, releasing bubbles all over the place.

Add essential oil of your choice, close and shake well.

Once the liquid “settles,” pour it into your softener tank, and make sure you use a jar, as it works best.

Extra tip:

Shake the softener before every use. Four tablespoons of the homemade softener are enough for one use.
