Here are some of the household items you can replace and how to do so!
1. Fabric SoftenerACV is a great way to condition your laundry if you have sensitive skin. Just add 1/2 cup of apple cider vinegar in place of your fabric softener and stop all the itching caused by harsh chemicals.

Mix equal parts water and ACV in a spray bottle and you’re ready to clean! While the vinegar smell will fade, you can add a few drops of citrus essential oil to leave a great smell once it dries.
3. Drain CleanerInstead of buying drain cleaner filled with dangerous chemicals, use safe items you probably already have!
