Fabric Softener VS. Vinegar
For as long as I can remember I have used diluted fabric softener. I even have a post here showing an easy way to dilute it down and it still work well. I had a question in that post that I have finally been able to answer. I wondered if I was using my own home made laundry soap instead of commercial laundry soap, and started using vinegar as my fabric softener if my clothes would be softer. The answer to that is yes! When I was using commercial laundry soap and vinegar, I still had trouble with my clothes being soft. When I switched to making all of my own laundry soap and continued to use commercial softener I had absorption problems with towels and our clothes were not very soft. When I used home made laundry soap AND used vinegar again my clothes after being washed a few times became very soft. I know there is a lot of wax in both the commercial soap and the fabric softeners and this needs to be washed out a couple of times before I could feel the results.
