Now, I have to be honest. I never really use fabric softener. I never saw the need. However, when I saw that someone had used white vinegar…I was intrigued. It is cheap and easy! I have used this several times – in cold water – with success!! Once the clothing is dry (I used a dryer for most of my clothing,) there is no vinegar smell remaining! I just smell fresh and clean! I also use my own homemade laundry detergent which doesn’t lend much fragrance and I like it that way. I used my homemade laundry detergent and the vinegar and I believe the vinegar aided in odor reduction and I believe my clothing comes out even fresher than without it. I have 2 boys and their socks can get NASTY!!!! I literally took a previously nasty sock out of the dryer and put it to my nose and took a deep breath in and…. it was so fresh smelling! No remnants of vinegar or stinky sweat. Pretty neat. I have continued to use vinegar for the past week or so with every load and I have been pleased every time. Don’t be alarmed if it smells coming out of the washer, the vinegar smell will be gone once it dried. I want to try adding essential oils to the vinegar to get a slightly flowery smell to my clothing but my boys don’t really want that….and are happy just smelling fresh! Have you tried this before?
