If your skin is prone to rashes, then fabric softeners are not the thing for you. Some fabric softeners contain harsh chemicals that can easily irritate your sensitive skin. But, don’t worry. This doesn’t mean that you have to wear harsh, staticky clothes all your life, because there’s a simple natural solution to this. And once you try this method, you’ll see it’s not only better for you, but for your washer too!

And the answer is vinegar – once you add it to the rinse cycle, it’ll act like a fabric softener minus all the harsh chemicals. And, not just this. It will make your clothes look bright, remove stains and laundry soap residue, and neutralize any unpleasant smells. You can also use it for more delicate clothes.


On the other hand, vinegar is not laden with harsh chemicals like fabric softeners. These toxic chemicals can harm your skin, your body, as well as the environment. Plus, they pollute your indoor air. If you fear for the smell, simply add a drop or two of your favorite essential oil.

Below, you can see Ron Beres, from The Healthy Home Dream Team, who will demonstrate how to use vinegar for washing clothes. You can also use vinegar to clean your washer.
