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. So out of this need came this idea.It is so easy to dip, dry and use over and over! This has saved me lots of money as I do NOT buy fabric softer sheets anymore!
  • It takes very little! Pour a very small amount of fabric softener or vinegar in a bowl and dip the clothes.
  • Let them hang dry and then pop them in the dryer when you need them. You can use many times before you need to "re-dip" them. Also a wonderful air freshener as they hang!

    I just use white vinegar in the fabric softener spot of the washer. Works great.

    I don't bother with dryer sheets. They are not good for your machine, as the stuff in them solidifies and clogs up your dryer vent screen. If your vent screen is clogged up, soak it in vinegar for a few hours. I add fabrc softener to the wash load. Add

    Fabric softener gums up your washing machine. I took mine apart and the leftover gunk from fabric softener was awful! It was slimy and smelly! If I use any softener, I dilute it a lot before adding it to my softener ball dispenser, I never put it in
