What’s the green alternative to fabric conditioner?

If you're looking for a cheap and green alternative to fabric conditioner or softener, vinegar will do the trick without those horrible, strong, artificial fragrances.

Since becoming more eco-friendly, I developed a strong dislike for standard laundy liquid and washing powders. I find their fragrance to be over-powering to the extent that I don't even like walking down the household goods aisle in the supermarket.

I use a natural laundry liquid which is softly-scented and I don't always use a fabric conditioner. but when I do it's our old friend vinegar to the rescue. Pour a quarter of a cup of white vinegar to the washing machine's fabric softener drawer and add a few drops of essential oils to add some natural fragrance. The great thing about this is that you can scent your laundry to fit your mood or the purpose of your laundry. For example, you may want to fragrance your bed linen and pyjamas with lavender.
