This natural 2 ingredient fabric softener makes clothes super soft & smell heavenly!

Yes, you can make your own fabric softener with only 2 natural ingredients. Avoid chemicals and make your clothes smell heavenly with this DIY idea.

I don’t like artificial fragrances for my home. Recently, I came up with a great idea to make my home smell like fall naturally. So now I decided also to make my clothes smell great and feel extra soft without the use of chemicals.

I usually buy Free & Clear Natural Laundry Detergent and soaps, , but the reality is, they are kind of boring. I want my clothes to smell good, fresh and clean. I also want them to feel super soft. This Make Your Own Fabric Softener With Only 2 Natural Ingredients was the solution to my problem.

You only need 2 ingredients: Epsom Salts and your favorite essential oil.

If you want to remove stains, you can also add baking soda. Baking soda does wonders when it comes to removing unwanted stains. Give it a try and see stains disappear. It is another fabulous natural ingredient you can incorporate when you do your laundry.

I love how my clothes smell with my favorite essential oil. I really like to use lemon or lavender but you can pick your favorite scents. I like to buy a Free & Clear Natural Laundry Detergent and just add this homemade fabric softener each time I do laundry.

If you have kids at home, Make Your Own Fabric Softener With Only 2 Natural Ingredients and create a product that is so perfect for sensitive skins. It is completely harmless and effective. You can now soften your clothes in a completely natural way.

Commercial fabric softeners are very toxic!

Commercial fabric softeners are filled with dangerous chemicals. Benzyl acetate is linked to pancreatic cancer if absorbed into the skin or inhaled. Benzyl alcohol causes irritants to the upper respiratory tract, and chloroform is a carcinogen and a neurotoxin. On top of that, commercial fabric softeners are bad for the environment as they are typically petroleum-based, which isn’t biodegradable and is a non-renewable resource.

The good news is when you make your own fabric softener, you can choose what goes into it. You can incorporate the use of different essential oils and create wonderful scents. If you want a stronger smell add a few more drops of essential oils to your homemade fabric softener.


We always have Epsom Salts and essential oils available at home.

You can take detox baths, decongest, or simply make your home smell great. There are many good uses for these two natural ingredients.

No more commercial fabric softeners for me! You can Make Your Own Fabric Softener With Only 2 Natural Ingredients and store it in a mason jar tightly closed with a lid to maintain freshness.

It really works! My clothes came out super soft. This homemade product smells so good, and it is also good for my family and the environment.
