Step 2: Fabric Softener

Picture of Fabric Softener
Yes, it's true, it can be used as a fabric softener.  It's perfect for removing soap residue, making the clothes naturally soft, and balancing the pH which extends the life of the clothes.  The smell of vinegar doesn't stay and makes the fabrics smell fresh.

Add about 1/2 a cup to 1 full cup of vinegar during the rinse cycle of your wash.
