    Do you absolutely have to use the vinegar??

    I added all the conditioner to part of the water (2c to 2c) FIRST, then shook the container fiercely for a full minute. After that, I added the rest of the water, shook...then added the vinegar and gently swirled. No more CURDLE! Looks creamy and smooth liked whip cream.??

    Hey, I tried this fabric softener, with the rosemary mint conditioner. However, it left big “oil” spots on the clothes! I washed them a second time and it all came out. How do I use it the first time without having it leave marks on the clothes? Thanks for any input you can give me

    I had a very hard time getting the conditioner to incorporate into the vinegar/water solution. Was a little better mixing the water into the conditioner 1/2 cup at a time, then mixing with vinegar. Still wanted to separate though. Any suggestions? It seemed to work pretty good, just looks kind of like curdled milk.

    Is this safe for front load washers?
