Fabric softener can not only give a lasting scent of freshness to your clothes but also become a constant assistant in your home. It will be useful both in cleaning and in fighting annoying insects.

Experts of the Express edition offered 5 ways to use the air conditioner. These life hacks will help you keep your home fresh and clean.

Pet hair remover

Pet hair is known for its ability to stick everywhere in the house. The texture of fabric softener is the perfect tool to speed up the cleaning process.

Mix two parts water with one part fabric softener and pour into a spray bottle. Shake the solution and spray it on sofas, carpets, rugs, and upholstered furniture before vacuuming.

Wood polish

Wooden surfaces should be cleaned with mild products, which makes fabric softener ideal for removing dirt and giving a glossy shine.

Dip a clean cloth in the fabric softener and lightly wipe wooden tables, chairs, and countertops. This simple trick will remove dirt and collect dust while keeping the delicate wood intact.

Restore volume to soft items

Fluffy rugs, pillows, and carpeting can quickly lose their appeal as the fibers wear down and become flat. It's easy to restore the three-dimensional appeal of fiber-filled soft goods with fabric softener.

Mix equal parts hot (not boiling) water and fabric softener in a spray bottle. Shake, spray the desired fabric, and leave on for at least five minutes.

Separate the fibers with plain water and a clean, soft-bristled brush before allowing the surface to dry completely.

Insect repellent spray

This fresh-smelling liquid can be used as an insect-repellent spray when mixed with a little water. Spray the product liberally on areas prone to unwanted insects to scare them away.
