Homemade Fabric Softener

Make Your Own Foot Scrub With Epsom Salt

Homemade fabric softener is very easy to make and totally customizable. To top it off, it won’t harm fragile fabrics, and it’s great at removing odors. It doesn’t mask them with perfumey scents like other fabric softeners do.

I’ve been making my own fabric softener for a while using this recipe. Recently, I’ve been adding more essential oils to the recipe in order to give it a stronger smell, this is especially true when I’m giving it away as a gift. Without the essential oil, this recipe would be much cheaper. Epsom salts + essential oils for fragrance are all you really need!

Here’s how you should be making your fabric softner

Just take your 4 cups of Epsom salts, and pour them into a bowl. Then add about 40 drops of your favourite essential oils.

My favourite scent for my homemade fabric softener crystals is a combination of 20 drops of Lavender and 20 drops of Frangipani. The combination is heavenly. But you can really just add whatever scent you love the most. In fact you could probably have it be non-scented if you wanted to as well which would save even more money. The salts alone would soften your clothes.

After you add in the oils, mix it all up until thoroughly blended. It took less than 2 minutes of mixing to be totally incorporated.

And Voila!

You have homemade fabric softener crystals!

Store them in an air-tight container or just pour the whole 4 cups into your homemade laundry recipe. If you use store bought laundry detergent you can just add a small scoop (1-2 tablespoons) of these crystals to your wash to soften your clothes.

Oh and try not to sit and just sniff your jar all day long. I know it’s tempting…. I know.
While the smell is strong in the jar, it’s not as strong on my clothes coming out of the dryer.
