DIY Dryer Sheets (One of my #ProudestDIY projects )

IDEAS 04.12.15
A while back I experimented with something when I ran out of dryer sheets. I did not have any coupons and I was NOT going to pay full price for dryer sheets.

    Dryer sheets are bad for the dryer. They leave a film on the dryer sensor. Also leaves a film on your lint filter. I have to wash my filter every once in awhile to get the film off...and...wipe off the sensor. I will definitely be switching to this

    I use dryer balls. Or a wash cloth with some vinegar poured onto it and pop in the dryer.

      Carolyn Doherty be careful of the vinegar spilling if you have a front loading machine. The vinegar ate through the door hinges and I had to replace them.

    I don't use dryer sheets either. If you leave them in the dryer, they can stain certain fabrics. I had this happen to dress shirts and they were ruined by the dryer sheets. I do make my own fabric softener, however, using vinegar, (hair) conditioner, and
