This is the cheapest, most natural and most versatile fabric softener that you will ever use. All you have to do is put 1/2 cup of White vinegar in your washing machine during the final rinse cycle. You can use your dispenser or a downy ball. If you want fragrance just add a few drops of essential oils. Regular use of vinegar in your washing machine helps prevent build up of soap scum and bacteria as well. Make sure to always leave your washing machine lid open to dry your machine out.
