    Amy - Ellie's Mommie's Note:

    Here is an alternative fabric softener. You could also add some essential oil for fragrance, if you like.

      I like the recipe with 1/2 cup of vinegar instead of glycerin. It's cheaper and is a lot better for static.

      I was excited to find a recipe for fabric softener, because I'm allergic to the perfumes in commercial fabric softeners, and the unscented costs more than the scented. I made up a batch with high hopes, which were not met. My clothes were a little bit softer than without fabric softener, but this recipe did nothing for static. I'm sure it would work for people who live in low-static areas, but it just didn't do the job for me.

      I was looking for a recipe to use up the bottle of glycerin I got from Oman, when I stumbled upon this. This is so easy to make and worked very well on my garments. I used some orange essential oil as well and the clothes are not just soft, but they also do smell wonderful. Now I do feel and smell(of oranges, ofcourse!) like a girl from the Orange County!;-)Thanks Amy!
