Epsom Salts Fabric Softener

Naturally Soften Clothes With Epsom Salts

You may think Epsom salts are only for soaking sore muscles or, ahem, helping out when your digestion isn't quite right, but there are so many uses for this unique salt. Magnesium sulfate is commonly used in bath salts and beauty products, but this naturally occurring mineral also softens fabrics.

You can pick up a box of Epsom salts for a buck at your dollar store, which is a bargain compared to name-brand fabric softeners.

The next time you're doing laundry, after adding your favorite laundry detergent, simply sprinkle a quarter cup of Epsom salts in the wash for wonderfully soft and fluffy clothes after they come out of the dryer.
