      This recipe shows a serious lack of understanding about what fabric softeners, and more importantly, the recipe ingredients are supposed to do. Fabric softeners of this type work by binding up the calcium and magnesium in hard water. The bicarbonate in baking soda is what does this. The vinegar is neutralizing some of the baking soda, without adding any benefit. This is only working because the vinegar didn't neutralize all of the baking soda. A better recipe would be to just use less baking soda (washing soda would work better) and no vinegar. Your friendly neighborhood chemist, Glenn

      I'm sorry but this didn't work for me. My washing machine has a center cup dispenser for fabric softener and this left the baking soda in the cup. I shook it up good too before pouring in.

      This is a wonderful recipe. But if you have a machine that tosses and doesn't fill for final rinse, be careful, it will spot and take the hue out of browns, yellows and some dark colors.I am talking about front loading washing machines.When in doubt use on light colors or whites.
