Did you make this and did it work? I have two dogs, so you can imagine the smells I fight at times. I buy febreeze, but alot of the scents I don't like. I wonder if this would be a better alternative. I would imagine it would be cheaper, especially if you could double a coupon to purchase the fabric softener.

Cheap, cheap white vinegar. Toss in 1/2-3/4C in the washer rinse … I love the way bath towels feel soft and they smell near as fresh as sun-dried once tossed through the dryer. Vinegar is the only option as fabric softener must remain in clothing to "work" and that makes me itch (dryer sheets are just as bad). Doesn't help that I have fragrance allergies and must actually flee from someone who washes with cup loads of Downey.
Vinegar also has an appeal in its death knell to microscopic critters that might be lurking in garden clothing (mold, mud, smell) and deconstructing any leftover soap hiding in the fabric. Yeah, I've got issues with bleach too. But I sure go through alot of white vinegar!
