orange glow fabric softener*
soften hard water with vinegar

Vinegar softens hard water and reduces static cling in the dryer, while the orange scent leaves laundry smelling fresh.

8 cups water
6 cups white vinegar
1 cup baking soda
25 drops sweet orange essential oil

Combine all ingredients in a large plastic jug (reused milk containers are great for this purpose). Shake well before adding ½ cup to the rinse cycle.
