Step 1: Boil 2 liters distilled water in a pot.
Step 2: While waiting for the water to boil, crush the fabric softener flakes, either using a mortar and pestle, or, put the flakes in a basin and roll a glass jar over it. Do this until the flakes become powdery.
Step 3: Remove the pot from heat. Pour the powdered fabric softener into the pot. Stir the mixture with a ladle until the powdered fabric softener dissolves completely.
Step 4: Add the ethyl alcohol and the downy fragrance. Mix well.
Step 5: Let the mixture cool for a while, then add another liter of distilled water. Make sure all the substances have thoroughly dissolved.
Step 6: When the mixture has cooled enough, pour it into the PET bottles.
The yield of the fabric softener mixture is 3.27 liters. Using 330-ml bottles, you can produce nine to 10 bottles of fabric softener from it. The shelf life of this fabric softener is one year.
You can add a markup of 40 to 45 percent to the total production cost to determine your selling price.
