At the start of the week I tried out substituting my capful of fabric conditioner with a shot of white vinegar, which was recommended to me by a good friend, and so far so good :)
There really is no vinegar smell at all on the clothes which was my main concern and I feel like I’m doing something to help the poor old washing machine from our hard water. It’s a toploader and I always feel like it’s more sensitive than a front-loader.
The clothes are also quite soft. I can’t believe how much of it I have used already! The branded fabric conditioner chemical mixture will not be used as default in our house anymore but I will continue to use each a little.
