Natural Fabric Softener: White Vinegar

Get clothing, towels and sheets naturally soft--and save money on pricey fabric softeners--with white vinegar. Used measure for measure in place of liquid fabric softener (3/4 cup for top-loading, 1/4 for front-loading washers), vinegar cuts detergent residue and softens fabric without perfumes or chemical additives. Dump the dryer sheets!
