    the last DIY project you did? What did you need? How did you do it?

    I make my own fabric softener out of hair conditioner, vinegar, hot water and essential oils. I get the cheapest 16oz bottle of conditioner I can find at Walmart and pick out whatever scent smells the best or will go with the essential oils I plan on using. You mix the whole 16 oz. bottle of conditioner (2 cups), 3 cups vinegar and 6 cups of hot water together. Then add 30-40 drops of whatever essential oil or oils you want to use and stir. Then I fill an old detergent jug or gallon milk jug. (I’ve found that using a several smaller jugs works better for filling a fabric softener ball.) To use: add 1/4 to 1/2 a cup to rinse cycle or fill a fabric softener ball and add at start of load. Works just as good as any store bought softeners.
