- 8 cups white vinegar
- 1 1/4 cups warm water
- 1 cup baking soda
- Essentials oils of your choice (like lavender, lemon, orange...)
In a big bucket (this will be fizzy) mix vinegar and water. Slowly add baking soda; stirring constantly. Use a funnel to pour this mixture into a gallon size container. Add 1/3 teaspoon of essential oil to the gallon container. For a stronger smell you can add more. Shake before each use. Add about a half a cup to a whole cup to the fabric softener dispenser depending on the size and content of your load.
You can add 3-5 drops of eucalyptus or tea tree oil to the dispenser along with the fabric softener to kill bacteria, mold, and viruses.
