Do you currently have any Downy® Fabric Conditioner in your laundry room? I can’t live without the stuff; I’ve tried so many different kinds of fabric softener, and I always come back to Downy. Over the years, I have learned a few great Downy® Fabric Conditioner hacks that save money, and I wanted to share a few of my favorites with you today.
DOWNY FABRIC CONDITIONER HACKS THAT SAVE MONEY
Here are a few Downy® Fabric Conditioner hacks that save money, I hope you find useful in your home.
REMOVE THAT YUCKY OLD WALLPAPER USING DOWNY® FABRIC CONDITIONER
To remove old wallpaper simply dilute Downy® Fabric Conditioner with water. I usually use an old spray bottle; that is cleaned out and pour half Downy® Fabric Conditioner and half warm water. To remove the wallpaper tear the top layer of wallpaper off a section and spray it will be the Downy® Fabric Conditioner mixture. Let it sit for a minute and peel it off; you might consider using a paintbrush or something to apply the Downy® Fabric Conditioner mixture.
KEEP YOUR HOUSE SMELLING FABULOUS
Why spend all kinds of money on something to make your house smell great when you can just use Downy® Fabric Conditioner, water, and baking soda. Yes, that’s it, and you can save some money every time you go to the store. It doesn’t take a lot of Downy to make this happen either – 2 Cups water, four tablespoons Downy® Fabric Conditioner, and 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder.
Did you know you can make your reusable dryer sheets with Downy Fabric Conditioner?
Yes, and all you’ll need is a new sponge or three (so you have a backup), Downy Fabric Conditioner, and water. I always cut my sponge in half, so I have extras ready to go in the dryer all the time. In a medium sized Tupperware container (or something similar with a lid) combine Downy Fabric Conditioner and water. I put about two lids full of water and two lid full of Downy Fabric Conditioner. Place sponges inside the Downy and water mixture and let them soak until you’re ready to use them.
When your next load of laundry goes into the dryer, just grab a sponge, ring it out, and toss it in with your clothing. Another fabulous way to have great smelling clothes and save money.
NO MORE WRINKLES
Combine one part Downy® Fabric Conditioner to ten parts water in a spray bottle to iron with. My sister-n-law does this and gets all the wrinkles out, and her clothing smells amazing. I have never tried it.
Okay, so you might have already known this one, and isn’t exactly a hack. I just think it’s awesome information for anyone not aware of the fact that using Downy® Fabric Conditioner can protect your clothing.
How does Downy® Fabric Condition help strengthen your clothes?
- It strengthens fibers, so your clothes maintain their shape better.
- Smoothes fibers which reduce the friction between them which can cause them to break, lead to frizz, and pilling.
- Keeping the fabrics strong helps colors stay brighter. It’s not until the fibers begin to break that colors appear dull.
- Rather than losing their shape, clothes bounce back to their store-bought form.
- Colors stay true and resist fading.
- Towels are protected from pilling and fuzz.
- Fabrics are softened for added comfort.
Think about your poor clothing and what they deal with in the washer. They get pulled, rubbed together and stretched. Downy conditions, strengthens and lubricates each fiber to protect clothing from the friction, and agitation of a typical washing cycle. Downy fabric conditioner offers protection to your clothing. You can also help protect them a bit more by turning garments inside out, and washing soft fabrics like cotton on the gentle cycle will keep your clothes looking the best. Downy Fabric Conditioner helps you maintain everything from you favorite thrift store find to that expensive dress only wear on special occasions. Downy extends the life of fabric by keeping your clothes looking and feeling like you just picked then up from the store. Plus, Downy Fabric Conditioner reduces wrinkles better than using detergent alone and leaves us with that long-lasting freshness.
