Vinegar is my new fabric softener.
I wasn’t very convinced to have a whole post on this, but I thought it will be useful to share it with all my friends and blog followers.
When we bought our washer @ Spencers, the sales guys suggested to use Vinegar as softener instead store bought fabric softeners. It seems he has been using from past 20 years and it does increases the washing efficiency. Just not washer, the sticky softener residue fills up the tiny holes in dryer’s lint filter and avoiding it is good for dryers too.
After some thought and looking up online, I decided to give it a try. First time filling the softener dispenser with Vinegar, I was really worried because it doesn’t smell nice. I had many questions – Do I smell like pickles or does my clothes smell like vinegar – Do I have to wash the load again 😉
So, I tried it on a towels and they don’t smell anything like I thought. They are absolutely fresh and crisp. The dispenser looks clean too without leaving any residue.
And I have fresh laundry meticulously folded for the picture.. 😉 It works great for infant, baby and toddler clothes because it is natural way to cleaning. They may not smell refreshing like actual softeners ( that fresh scent) but are safe and chemical-free.
Thank you for stopping by!

When we first we moved to US(2012) ,our first 2 months of accommodation was in a hotel and that's when everything started.
You must be wondering HOW?
I was introduced to HGTV and started reading craft blogs.
Ohh yes, PINTERST toooo and that is my fav!
Well, inspired from these places, I started to DIY on budget and decorate our home. Whenever I posted pics of my projects on Facebook, everyone loved and gave many positive comments. Some of them also said I should not look for a job, instead start a blog or sell some of my projects ;) They thought I was doing something very cool!! That was a great motivation and I decided to tickle my creative senses to tame the stress monster ;-)
And then, one day here is my blog , where I share my ideas and projects with friends, family and all other aspiring DIY-er's :)
