I must admit that ever since the thrifty tip a day e-mail I got that said to use duct tape instead of shaving your legs I've dreaded opening up this "thrifty tips" how ever this one was pretty neat. I may have to try it seeing as I always for get to add softner to the laundry.
2 Cups White Vinegar
2 Cups Baking Soda
4 Cups Water
Combine slowly and carefully over sink. The baking soda and vinegar will fizz.
Pour into plastic bottle, cover, and shake.
*Hint - Reuse your "Downy" bottle.
Use 1/4 cup in the final rinse or in a "Downy Ball"...
I read on a frugal site somewhere a tip in regards to using a couple of sprays of liquid softner on a washrag instead of dryer sheets.
I did this and it works great except for one thing. Several items of my son's clothing now have blue stains on them that won't come out !!
