Mmmm, smells…um…ok I guess

softened fabric laundry

Staged and utterly impractical laundry photo: it is 2° centigrade today. This laundry won’t dry out on the line until March

Fabric softener made from leftover hair conditioner is, according to my recent experiment,

  • easy to make
  • very quick
  • not expensive (that is, if you ignore how expensive the conditioner was in the first place)
  • satisfying in an at-least-that-waste-of-money-isn’t-gathering-dust-in-the-bathroom kind of way

but to be totally honest, the laundry doesn’t smell as amazing as the original Aveda conditioner did on my hair. Maybe I over-diluted it. And if I’m really picky, can’t say the fabric feels any softer! Have I just stumbled on a huge marketing conspiracy – fabric softener is pointless?

Not disappointed, but tiny bit underwhelmed.

    Glad I’m not the only one to be feeling a little let down by Aveda conditioner :)

      oh thank god i’m not alone!

      laundry’s still smelling – well, ok, i guess.

      different strokes for different folks, i guess, and aveda laughs all the way to the bank when we make untested purchases!

  2. wow, i’d have never thought hair conditioner might = fabric softener. that’s an idea worth trying out! although i sometimes add shampoo when i hand-wash my delicates ;)

About me

I started this blog to help me Get Things Done: sewing and knitting mostly.
But now I have a daughter! So I continue to daydream in enormous detail about what I'd like to make, but squeeze the 'doing' into precious naptimes and evenings.

Can I keep it up? Time will tell!
