4. Getting rid of water stains in the bathroom
You can’t get rid of these annoying white stains in the bathroom just by using water — it usually requires special chemical agents. And as it turns out, fabric softener will be enough! Add 1/2 cup of fabric softener into 1/2 cup of warm water and spray it onto the surface. Clean it with a sponge and let it dry — the stains should come right off.
5. Freshening up drapes
If you’re really into air fresheners but don’t like spending too much money on them, make your own! Add some softener and a 1/2 spoonful of baking soda mixed with water into a spray bottle and just like that, you’ll be able to freshen up your curtains, linens, and upholstered furniture whenever you want.
6. Detangling doll hair
If a Barbie doll has an explosion on her head, it’s no reason to throw her away! A blogger named Ashley Hackshaw suggests soaking the doll’s hair in equal parts water and fabric softener, leaving it for a couple of minutes, then brushing out tangles and washing it with water.
