You can use any scent of hair conditioner you choose. I usually buy Suave because it's the cheapest.

How to Make Homemade Fabric Softener


  1. Heat water until it's hot but not boiling.
  2. Add conditioner and stir with wire whisk to mix well. Stir until conditioner is completely dissolved.
  3. Add vinegar, stir to mix well.
  4. Allow to cool before placing in bottle (I use an old, one gallon, vinegar bottle)
  5. Place softener in washer like you would any other liquid softener. You can use as little as 2 tbsp. but I like to use at least 4-6 tbsp!
